Read Across America 2021

I want to thank Mrs. Hinrichs at Riversprings Elementary for inviting me to Read Across America with the Navigators this week!

Outside the State House: Inside the Community

Want to continue to give y’all a behind the scenes look at your Representative. Over the years, we’ve had thousands of new residents in Chapin, Dutch Fork and Irmo, and I want to let you see a side of me in 2021 you may not see normally. These clips will be about a minute long. Just thought might be good to see the “normal” side of me as well as what we do when we’re not inside the State House.

From time to time, I like to record for you what goes on INSIDE the State House as well as what goes on OUTSIDE the State House.

Of course, if you’re very interested, you can always follow the action on the House and Senate floors or any committee meetings by going to SCStatehouse.gov .

Ever since you first sent me to Columbia, I’ve worked to keep you informed. If you do not currently receive my regular COMMUNITY UPDATE emails, please email me at NathanBallentine@schouse.gov and let me know to add you to the distribution list!

I hope everyone is staying safe as we continue to work to return life back to normal. I have a COVID vaccine update I will be emailing later this evening!
