House District 120 Rep. Bill Bowers will head back to Columbia for a sixth consecutive term, having won Tuesday's election with 55 percent of the vote. Republican candidate Dr. Joe Flowers garnered 45 percent.
"We're ready to go back to work tomorrow. With a vote of confidence, we are out to work harder than ever," Bowers said. "We'll make sure Colleton and Hampton receive their rightful place in the state."
Bowers, 54, said he wants to improve public education and make the "antiquated" tax system more equitable. He has served in the statehouse for 10 years. In his next term he will be eligible for a seat on the House Ways and Means committee, which writes the state's budget.
Flowers, 70, a family physician who served eight years on Colleton County Council, said Bowers has accomplished little in the last decade to give Colleton a stronger voice. "I hope he will get busy and do something more forceful to help this county," Flowers said.
Bowers says his record includes helping bring the state's nursing home to Walterboro and pushing for Edisto Beach renourishment.
