Conservation Voters of South Carolina (CVSC) announced today the launch of GiveGreenSC which promises to change the landscape of political giving in South Carolina.
Since 2004, donors who care about protecting South Carolina’s air, land, water and health have had the option to give directly to Conservation Voters’ PAC, which in turn made contributions to endorsed candidates or financed independent mail campaigns on behalf of candidates.

CVSC makes early decision on “our most important statewide office.” Today the Board of Directors of Conservation Voters of South Carolina (CVSC) announced the endorsement of Senator Vincent Sheheen for Governor of South Carolina.

Brad Wyche took up the mantel as The Lorax of the Upstate 15 Years ago in a quest to stem the sprawl that creeps along the spokes that extend from Greenville, the city he’s always called home.
Wyche doesn’t speak with the “bossy” demands of the character coined in the Dr. Seuss children’s book. His tone is measured, his manner more that of cooperative negotiator, but like the Lorax, Wyche strives to preserve the forests and waterways for future generations.
