Dear Mr. Kimpson,
It is with great pleasure that the National Association of Social Workers, SC Chapter, endorses you for the State Senate, District 42. Our Political Action for Campaign Election (PACE) committee is impressed by your stance on the need for Medicaid Expansion to help the thousands of South Carolinians in need of affordable healthcare, many of whom are the clients that social workers serve. We are also encouraged by your support of diversity and your determination to fight for our environment. These are issues that must be at the forefront of our Legislature’s agenda, but they are too often pushed aside. We are hopeful that you will be a strong voice on these matters.
We will do our best to encourage our membership to get to the polls in October. When you take office, our chapter will gladly work with you in looking out for the needs of the less fortunate and the vulnerable—those whom we are tasked and honored to serve.
