Hello Friends,

My name is Bruce Fischer and like many who were born outside of the beautiful State of South Carolina I was fortunate enough to be able to come to live where my heart really belongs, in Longs, South Carolina, and this is where I have been a resident for the past 11 years. While I was born in New York State, South Carolina is my home.

I joined the Army in 1966, went through helicopter flight training and was deployed to Vietnam in 1968, just in time for the Tet Offensive. Upon my return from overseas I became a flight instructor, and I served there until my honorable release from active duty in 1970. I went on to earn my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Stony Brook University and continued serving the needs of patients in private practice and in several large hospital systems back home and here in South Carolina. I have 2 grown children whom I love very much.

I proudly ran for the Democratic nomination for Congress (SC-07) in 2018. I am a dedicated, service-minded individual, convinced that we can all work together for the betterment of our community, our County and our State. I am an Equal Rights and Civil Rights for all proponent.

I am currently concerned about the proposed Bill in the Columbia which would allow lesser-qualified, non-certified teachers to be hired by schools, when the schools in our State have traditionally performed in the lower ranks as compared to other States. Is this really what we want? Teachers here in Horry County are rightfully concerned about the pending legislation. We cannot lower our educational standards, nor teacher compensation, and rationally expect students to improve or succeed. These are our children. I therefore support the inclusion of teacher-proposed amendments to the current legislation, as I will for any and all future Education legislation in the State and at the local level.

I also am concerned over the unfettered growth in Horry County. Growth is good in general for businesses and worker salaries, which I want to support vigorously. However, there needs to be proper planning that takes into account the geographic constraints and the limits imposed by inadequate infrastructure. We need consistent growth, as opposed to a boom and bust economy.

We have seen an increase in flooding over the past few years. Adding more pavement increases the amount of runoff which may only worsen the problem, but with thorough planning we can minimize this effect. Traffic along the Grand Strand in the winter is now almost as congested as it is during peak tourist season. We must effectively plan upgrades in our roads and highways in order to handle the current traffic volumes, as well as the anticipated increases, so as to enhance service to residents with the least possible detriment to businesses and private properties.

These are just a couple of my immediate concerns. Please stay engaged so that we can all work together to improve the lives of our children, our environment, our incomes, and our overall way of life here in South Carolina.

I would appreciate your vote in November of 2020.

Sincerely,

Dr. Bruce Fischer, Candidate for South Carolina House District 56
