Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Patrick's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Accountability and Transparency

  • Excerpt: "For that reason, I promise to be up front about my stances on the issues and to always remember that your opinions are more important than my own. As a representative, it is my mission and purpose to bring your concerns to the State House and fight for the issues most important to you, my constituents."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Education is the foundation for a strong economy and a prosperous society. We need to train our future engineers, doctors, and business leaders for success! Our children are our greatest treasure and they deserve nothing but the best and every available opportunity. This is done by strengthening our Public Education system and expanding school choice. We need to reach under privileged children earlier, while providing stronger STEM programs that address local needs, here in South Carolina."

Tax Reform

  • Excerpt: "The current tax code is not working for South Carolinians – it places too much of the burden on consumers, while allowing the special interests to avoid paying their fair share, or any taxes at all. We need to expand the tax base, reduce taxes on consumers, and establish better, more efficient means of collecting taxes that cut costs, all while allowing us to maintain state funded services."
