Jaime Harrison on Principles & Values

 

 


I will never lie to you; won't go back on my word

Harrison: Google Lindsey Graham and term limits. He said he would term limit himself. I do believe that the ultimate term limit is in the power of the people here in South Carolina. But I also believe it is incumbent upon us to keep our promises. And if we change our minds, just admit, I changed my mind. Don't duck and dodge. I will never, never, never lie to you. You may not agree with everything I say all the time, but you will always know where I stand and I'm not going to go back on my word.

First step working with other side is not to call them nuts

Graham: The people running the Democratic Party today are nuts.

Harrison: The first step in terms of working with the other side is not to call the other side nuts. I have a six-year-old who I teach, "You know, son, that sometimes people come from different backgrounds and they see the world a little differently, but that doesn't make them bad because of it." Even though Democrats and Republicans may take the different paths, hopefully our destination is the same.

Not political issues: about doing what is right

"We are trying to be above politics because we have issues here that are not political issues," he said. "They are issues that Democrats and Republicans, poor and rich, black and white are all struggling with and dealing with on a day to day basis. It's about doing what is right versus what's wrong."

Helping others: cooking dinners, sharing campaign donations

Harrison said his campaign is seeking to help others. He said he cooked dinner Friday for parents of hospitalized children at the Ronald McDonald House in Greenville. He promised to turn over $20,000 at the end of December from his campaign account to the state Democratic Party to assist other candidates.

Good citizens make good communities

Jaime's passion for public service came at an early age when he learned that good citizens make good communities. Today, public confidence in our institutions is low. In fact, Lindsey Graham used to be an example of a true statesman who stood above petty politics, but he has quickly shown that his career is his only priority. Jaime knows the best way to restore confidence in our government is to instill a love of country and community in our young people.
