SCDP Issues Statement On Seth Whipper



Columbia, SC – South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Trav Robertson released the following statement on the resignation of State Representative Seth Whipper, who will serve as a magistrate judge in Charleston County:

“I have known Representative Whipper for most of my political life.  He was raised by a family that believed it was a sacred obligation to speak for those who had no voice.  Not many leaders can do or say so much with a glance or a smile—Representative Whipper’s smile has been a hallmark of his public service.  His dedication and advocacy for his constituents will be missed in the General Assembly.  I congratulate him on his new position as a magistrate judge in Charleston County and am happy that our state will continue to benefit from his public service.  I wish all the best to him and his wonderful family.”
