Sandy Senn has officially announced that she will run for Senate in District 41, which Senator Paul Thurmond is vacating. Senn is a Republican and a West Ashley attorney who regularly represents police, firefighters, and EMTs in the Lowcountry.
When asked why she wanted to run, Senn responded: “Like everyone else, I am overburdened by driving in too much traffic on poor roadways. I also believe that our educational system needs to focus on preventing childhood obesity by having physically interactive classrooms which are available at minimal costs. In addition, our educational system should provide more vocational and trade school opportunities which would cater not only to the new industries in the area but also many students would be happy learning how to work with a good old-fashioned tool belt. We need to teach them skills which will lead to their prosperity. Finally, I am an extremely strong advocate for police, firefighters, and EMTs. It is a fact that most officers are good citizens and fair-minded. Yet, liberal interest groups and media have painted all officers in a bad light because of the conduct of a few. I am concerned about the quality of the future applicants as first responders if those honorable professions continue to be maligned even when they are also targets of terrorists. In the senate, I will be a strong advocate for police, firefighters, and EMTs.”
Senn has represented all 46 sheriffs in the state as General Counsel for the South Carolina Sheriff’s Association. Senn was previously a Republican panelist and advocate on the political talk show “The Carolina Gang” but this is her first venture into politics.
