December COTU Meeting a success ...

Conservatives of the Upstate’s November meeting held at SilverBay Seafood was VERY informative. Special thank you to Seth Powell for speaking to us on where we need to focus our energy on cleaning up the corruption and criminal activity going on! 

Your action item is to call Allan Wilson ASAP @ 803-734-3970 to tell him to do his job and open up investigations into Brian White’s pay to play scheme.  

See comment section on sending email as well. 

It is IMPERATIVE WE THE PEOPLE demand accountability from our elected employees! What kind of boss allows corruption? DO YOUR JOB AS THE BOSS... if they ignore us ... “ we double down!”

Here's a link you can use to easily send emails to him and McMaster, as well

COTU will not meet in the month of December but will resume monthly meetings in January! Don’t forget about the legislative delegation meeting in January.

A quote about immigration...

“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked, and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants in this country.”

- Barack Obama (2005)
