Vincent Sheheen Responds To Nikki Haley’s Speech



Today, Governor Nikki Haley delivered her State of the State address. Sheheen for South Carolina released this response from Sen. Vincent Sheheen:

“Leadership means action and accountability, not just words. Once again, words are all we get from Nikki Haley. For three years we’ve listened to Nikki Haley talk and for three years we’ve watched her fail to lead. South Carolinians watched her oppose expanding four-year-old kindergarten and fail to put forward any ideas on education until it was election time. They lived through her cover-up of a hacking at the Department of Revenue that compromised the security of 3 million South Carolinians. And they’ve heard her talk about using a magical, make believe ‘money tree’ to pay for desperately needed repairs to our state’s roads and bridges. That’s not the leadership South Carolinians deserve. South Carolinians deserve a government that works and works for them. And when government doesn’t, they don’t need excuses, they deserve action and results. It’s time for new leadership and real accountability.”
