Contact: Greg Rogers For Immediate Release

Phone: 803-517-7825



Campaign to focus on Jobs, Schools

Ending months of speculation, Fort Mill businessman Greg Rogers will announce his candidacy to run for the South Carolina House seat being vacated by the resignation of Carl Gullick. The announcement will be made at Hall Dielectric Machinery of Rock Hill. The announcement will be made Monday, June 22nd at 12:30 PM.

Rogers works in private economic development in Fort Mill. He is a long time resident of district 48. Greg grew up in Tega Cay and attended Fort Mill High. He went to college at Winthrop University where he studied political science. Greg has spent the past few years focusing on improving his community, through such activities as founding the Fort Mill Jaycees and his recent appointment to the York County Economic Development Board.

Rogers believes his background in economic development and strong community ties makes him uniquely qualified to serve in the State House. “We are fortunate to live in such a wonderful community. Over the years, we have built a solid foundation in schools and have created a desirable climate for growth and prosperity. We can’t pretend that everything is perfect though. We need a representative who understands how to create the best environment for continued success and who understands the community enough to know how bad legislation will affect it.”

Rogers continued, “Act 388 has left our businesses and schools out to dry and it must be reformed or repealed. We have some of the best schools in the state, and we need to make sure that they maintain their high standards. We need to make sure that every student has the opportunity to attend the very best schools. We need to bring the principles of free enterprise to education. While school choice may be a short term option, we need to work to make sure that every school brings out the very best in our youth. We also need a representative who knows the community and will work to transform the office of state representative. We need someone who knows that this is not a January to June job, but a year round job. We need someone who has roots in our community who can bring leaders and citizens together to work together to make sure we have the best community possible.”
