Elizabeth Moffly declared her candidacy for the open 1st Congressional District seat last Thursday to a gathering of her supporters at Geechie Seafood at Shem Creek.
Moffly, currently a Trustee on the Charleston County School Board, combines a history of independent thinking with the courage to speak out on issues.
She told her supporters she considers public service a higher calling – “to be a voice for the people where decisions are being made that have a direct effect on our lives.”
Moffly outlined a three issue platform of Personal Freedom, Economic Security and Limited Government that will serve as the base of her campaign message.
She will officially file her intention of candidacy at the S.C. Reublican Party Headquarters in Columbia tomorrow shortlybefore noon.
