Meet Bill McAfee – Businessman, conservative blogger

I first met Bill over 15 years ago when we both were in the South Carolina National Bank Management Trainee Program. He had just graduated from the Citadel and I had graduated from USC. I knew then that Bill was very talented and was going to “go places”.

What I didn’t know was that we would stay in touch and eventually live just miles apart here in Irmo.
I also didn’t know I would be fortunate enough to have him help me become your State Representative four years ago as well as help us pass Ryan’s Law (Insurance Coverage for Autistic children).

Recently Bill started blogging and I encourage you to visit his site, Stewardship Journal. .
