COLUMBIA — Gov. Nikki Haley’s wide-ranging talk to the Rotary Club here Monday included her legislative accomplishments, such as roll call voting and new illegal immigration enforcement, her thoughts on being the state’s first woman governor and why she wants a culture change in South Carolina.
The first-term Republican also unveiled preliminary details on a new Neighbors Helping Neighbors project during her remarks to the crowd of roughly 200. Haley said the new project she’s taking on is designed to bring together community and faith-based resources to help the state residents take care of one another. More details on that project are expected in the coming weeks.
The governor told the group her legislative victories included:
Henry McMaster, the state’s former attorney general and Haley’s one-time gubernatorial rival, said Haley is fighting for the state.
“She loves South Carolina like we do,” McMaster said. “I can promise you this: If there are forces that will try to expand the size of the bureaucracy, she will tell them, ‘No’ and she will not back down. If there are those that want to raise taxes, which will cause the economic undoing of the state, she will tell them, ‘No’ and she will not back down.”
