Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Tinkler's campaign website highlights the following issues:[2]

Ethics reform

  • Excerpt: "Unless people are confident that their elected officials are free from conflicts of interest and undue influence of special interest money, democracy in government does not work. Every passing week we hear of politicians “indicted for this” or “under investigation” for that. For those serving us in government, ethics should be a high priority."

Education funding

  • Excerpt: "Our economy cannot thrive without recommitting resources to public education. We must find ways to create equitable and stable funding for all school districts in the state. It is completely unacceptable that our education funding per child is 31% less than what is required by law. I will fight to ensure that our children’s education funding is sourced from a secure revenue stream that is immune to the cyclical nature of our nation’s economy."

Tax reform

  • Excerpt: "As a Realtor, I understand that fairness in tax policy is important to creating and maintaining healthy communities. The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce have both proposed tax reforms, which I support."

Infrastructure

  • Excerpt: "South Carolina once had bridges, highways and roads second to none. We have allowed them to deteriorate over the past decades. Unless we find a viable way to fund the necessary improvements, our valuable infrastructure will continue to crumble. This is detrimental to both the safety of residents and our state economy as a whole. I will support responsible expenditure allocation to maintain and improve this vital infrastructure."

Environmental protection

  • Excerpt: "Born and raised in the Lowcountry, I cherish the beauty of our district, and I believe it should be both preserved and protected for future generations. I also believe the unique beauty of our state is a significant economic asset. I will work hard to preserve and protect the SC environment from the Upstate to the coast. This includes issues such as responsible planning and growth as well as environmental issues that affect clean air and water. As your Representative, I promise to fight to keep our District, the Lowcountry and our state healthy and beautiful."
