KellyGram – Austin Bowers for the House

 

 

With primary elections just around the corner, today’s KellyGram spotlights House candidate, Austin Bowers. I have known Austin Bowers since he was a teenager, have grown close to both him and his family over the years. I’m proud to say that I serve as one of Austin’s mentors and have witnessed his successes as he completed high school, graduated from Wofford, and survived his first year at the University of South Carolina School of Law. And as for his decision to go to law school in Columbia…Austin had other choices, but enrolled in law school at USC upon my recommendation, and he is very happy with his choice!

Several months ago, Austin shocked me when he let me know of his decision to run for the South Carolina House of Representatives at age 22. Initially, I admittedly had some concerns about how anyone already juggling vigorous law school curriculum and a demanding job could successfully dedicate the time and focus necessary to campaign and, eventually, serve as a representative. I have since gotten a chance to work with Austin directly in a professional setting, on a daily basis, as he is clerking at the Mike Kelly Law Group this summer. Having fully seen Austin Bowers in action, I am certain that he has what it takes to succeed on all levels and to provide the people of House District 87 with the dedicated representative they deserve.

 

Austin believes in a new generation of leadership and a fresh approach to representing the residents of House District 87. One of his key focuses is to reestablish public trust in the members of the general assembly, who are sworn to govern by the people and for the people. The transparent approach Austin brings to the table is exactly what we need to achieve this goal, which has become even more critical in light of recent events. His actions, as well as words, reflect his dedication to the public—for instance, last Saturday Austin, with his campaign managers Caleb Surface and Alex Bowers, walked 17 miles, door-to-door, to shake the hands of the individuals he hopes to soon serve.

Austin’s approach to this position is most refreshing, and you can learn more about his campaign by visiting his Facebook here. I urge everyone in House District 87 to get out on June 12th and vote for Austin Bowers!

Have a great weekend!

Mike Kelly
