Governor Nikki Haley continued her statewide “Movement” tour in Charleston Wednesday night.
So we’ve got a lot to talk about. This is an exciting time in South Carolina because while we are going through very challenging times, we have amazing opportunities. And, the goal is to take the challenges that we have today and turn them into opportunities so we never have to go through this again.
Haley told the crowd of about 500 at the College of Charleston, she wants to keep her promises.
This is basically what I said when I started the campaign: I asked you to join a movement, and I said don’t ever let the movement be about a person, don’t ever let it be about an election. Let is be about the results and what we do going forward. That is what this is about. So, when we say we are a movement now, this is about making sure we prove results, that it is not about political talk, but it’s about true action, and that’s what we are trying to do.
By her side, Haley had a poster board-sized list of things to get done in the state and where they stand.
What you see here is a report card, and aside what everybody said about this being about bashing legislators, that was not the intent of what this was supposed to do. All of these issues were things that we talked about that I heard from you as we were campaigning. There are no surprises on this issue, and all of these are things the people wanted and it’s good for South Carolina. They are non-partisan, they’re good government, they’re pro-business, and they are going to carry South Carolina forward. So, what we are doing is reporting to you where we are right now.
The governor’s next stop is in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area on Monday.
