CVSC is proud to endorse Rep. William Cogswell (R-Charleston), a strong supporter of citizens’ rights to a clean and healthy environment. Cogswell earned an excellent 98% score on his 2017-2018 legislative scorecard. He fought rollbacks to environmental protections. He stood against offshore drilling that could threaten South Carolina’s booming tourism industry. He supported proactive policies that move our state forward – including the SC Conservation Bank, energy reform, and clean energy options. Cogswell sponsored legislation that would free up local funds to fix drainage and flooding issues in Charleston and other coastal communities – a huge need as our coastal communities continue to battle flooding and sea level rise. Conservation and South Carolina need Rep. Cogswell in the Statehouse to continue his leadership and advance these important issues for all of our residents.
