Why should voters choose you in this election?

For 37 years, I have been a faithful public servant as a Clemson University County Extension Agent.  I want to continue helping the people of Saluda and Lexington Counties to enjoy a better life.  I can help find innovative solutions to the challenges of today and tomorrow.  I plan to use my knowledge and experience with agriculture, forestry, wildlife, natural resource conservation, economic development, rural development, job creation, youth development and education to assist the residents of District 39. The future for our towns and rural communities is bright.  We must build on this positive outlook and prepare for the challenges and opportunities ahead.  I am a man of my word and will do my absolute best to help the people that reside in House District 39.

I am pleased to have the endorsement of Representative Marion Frye, our current District 39 House of Representatives Member.  I feel that this speaks volumes for my qualifications as Representative Frye has served our District for seven terms.

I am committed to serving the residents of House District 39 and look forward to the opportunity to represent you in Columbia. On November 6, I urge you to vote for the person and not the party. Please vote for Phil Perry, Petition Candidate.
