Tameika Isaac Devine Secures Senate District 19 Victory
COLUMBIA, S.C.—Conservation Voters of South Carolina (CVSC) is proud to congratulate Tameika Isaac Devine on her victory in the special election for Senate District 19. This election marks a significant step forward in our ongoing efforts to champion conservation for the people of South Carolina.
Tameika Isaac Devine, a former City of Columbia Councilwoman, has campaigned on land conservation and protecting community resources, clean air and water, and cleaning up pollution. Her commitment to increasing the number of non-fossil fuel vehicles in the state’s fleet and incentivizing cleaner transportation methods aligns perfectly with CVSC’s vision for a cleaner state.
John Tynan, President of CVSC, expressed his enthusiasm: “We are overjoyed with Tameika Isaac Devine on her election to State Senate District 19. Her commitment to balancing growth with neighborhood needs, conserving land, fighting for clean air and water, and embracing clean energy solutions is exactly what we need. Her victory is not just a win for District 19 but for all who care about our state’s future.”
In support of Tameika Isaac Devine’s campaign, CVSC PAC implemented an outreach program, sending out over 8,900 pieces of mail, running impactful digital displays, and multiple rounds of targeted messaging to over 10,000 voters via calls and text messages to encourage early voting as well as election day votes for Tameika.
As the first African-American female elected to Columbia City Council and the first African-American elected at-large, Tameika has been a trailblazer in tackling critical issues. We encourage all residents of Senate District 19, which covers portions of Richland County, including parts of the City of Columbia, to continue supporting Tameika Isaac Devine as she embarks on this new chapter of public service. Her victory is a testament to the power of community engagement and the importance of environmental advocacy in shaping a sustainable future for our state.
