Susan Brill focuses on providing the citizens of South Carolina with the resources they need to be successful and compete in today’s ever-changing global society. She emphasizes the need for education for all ages and has proven her commitment to ensuring that the right opportunities are available.
A Strong Focus on Education is Needed for Richland County — and South Carolina
Since 2006, Susan has been a dedicated Richland District 2 School Board Member. Her primary agenda has been to provide children with educational opportunities they need to be prepared to tackle the careers of tomorrow. Beginning with preschool, it is important to lay the right foundation of learning fundamentals. Educational initiatives can only be achieved by employing dedicated and innovative faculty who receive the support and recognition needed to perform their jobs.
Highest Ethical Standards Upheld
Like many other citizens of South Carolina, Susan has noticed a distinct and evident lack of ethics by some elected officials. From the state level down to the local community, those entrusted to make decisions that are best for South Carolina have disappointed their constituents again and again. For more than 20 years, Susan has committed her life to making her community a better place for all by acting in an ethical manner. She will continue to do so by focusing on being a State Senator full time and not using her position of power for personal gain.
Reform is Needed
Susan understands how important South Carolina’s infrastructure is — both within its transportation system and its support system for the state’s most disadvantaged children.
- In order for South Carolina to compete for new industries — and the jobs they bring — the state’s roads and bridges must be supported and maintained for our safety.
- Investing in the children of South Carolina means helping those that are at risk of physical and emotional danger. Providing resources and support to the Department of Social Services is crucial for the agency’s reform. A strong foster parent program is also needed to nurture and ensure the safety of our most vulnerable children.
Bringing Jobs to South Carolina
South Carolina’s record of attracting international and national businesses is commendable. However, it is essential to have an educated workforce to meet the needs of both current and future South Carolina employers. A more educated workforce means better-paying jobs and better lifestyles for all people in South Carolina. Our State must provide workforce readiness such as the Richland Two Institute of Innovation (R2i2) that promises to provide opportunities for students to obtain the technological and career skills necessary to earn a real living wage. As a State Senator, Susan will continue to seek out and support other readiness programs.
