I have taught in the public schools and for five years in a medium security men’s prison. For the last 30 years I have taught sociology at Coker College. I have traveled to 8 countries to work for human rights and have monitored 2 elections with the UN. My community service includes: the board of the local homeless shelter, the Disabilities Board, Christmas in April (low-income housing), organization of numerous panel discussions at Coker College, and started the Hartsville Earth Day festival. My book, “Covering and Covering-Up High Treason: Media Coverage of the Assassination of President Kennedy” will be published in 2018. I met my wife, Carole Holloway, an attorney for the Department of Social Services, at a panel discussion on homelessness, at Coker College in 1991.<br /> <br /> I believe Congress has a responsibility to invest in America to create more jobs, opportunity, and security. I believe that common sense for the common good means liberty and justice for all. When the wealthy pay their fair share in taxes, we can responsibly invest in infrastructure, early childhood education, make college affordable, and lead the world in sustainable energy. I believe that healthcare is a human right, and that Medicare for All is good for business and necessary for dignity. We need to strengthen social security, veterans rights, and to restructure the war on drugs, and our criminal justice system<br />
