Rita’s Guiding Principles

Rita Allison’s approach to public service is governed by five guiding principles: education first, lower taxes and less government, constituent service, true conservative values, and reforming healthcare.

Limiting government in our personal lives and in our small businesses is a priority for Rita. She will continue to work to make government more accountable to the people. Rita will also make sure government is efficient and effective in serving the citizens of our state.
A skilled and educated work force is a must for South Carolina’s economy to move forward. Rita will work to improve our education system – from early education to high school as well as higher education. She believes educating our children is the key to a strong and prosperous economy and society.
Rita will always work to conserve our State’s rights and to strive to keep federal mandates from infringing on our personal and state choices. She will protect our right to choose our healthcare provider and plan.
Small businesses are the backbone of our state and a business-friendly environment is important to boost our economy. Rita will ensure our state encourages entrepreneurship, and protects small business owners from increasing regulations and taxes. She is working to get our economy back on the right track.
Rita is committed to serving the people in her district and to working to move our state forward. She has a servant’s heart and an “open-door” policy to hear your concerns and suggestions on how state government can better serve the people.

True Conservative Values

Rita Allison is 100% pro-life.
She believes each unborn child is made in the image of God, and that individual rights we hold so dearly should extend to the unborn as well. Technology has become a great ally and provides the ability for doctors and families to view 3-D images of an unborn child. Rita will work tirelessly to ensure that these images are available to every expectant mother prior to any life decision.

Rita believes in the importance of traditional family values.
She is glad our constitution has been changed to define marriage as between one man and one woman; now, she will support judges who uphold that definition and the intrinsic value of the family core.

Rita believes in the importance of protecting our Second Amendment rights.
She is committed to ensuring gun owners and sportsmen who abide by the laws are able to keep their guns without government interference.
