The four Democrats are Pastor Ja-Don Buckner, the Rev. Kenneth Hodges, businessman Bobby Mayes and Walterboro attorney Reaves McLeod. Buckner, pastor of the Walterboro Christian Center, said parents should be able decide what schools their children should attend. "I think competition is good," he said."We have nothing to make the schools get better." He also favors letting Jasper County build a port to help bring jobs to the depressed region. "It would be excellent for us and excellent for them." Hodges, who owns a home in Colleton County while preaching at a church in Beaufort and owning an art gallery in Beaufort, said that without jobs, good schools can only do so much. "We have to have jobs in place so they can return to this area if they choose to," he said.He wants to level off property taxes. "The value of land is escalating so high in this area that it's going to drive some people out of their homes," he said. McLeod said the state should fund schools completely and equitably. He also wants better roads, particularly U.S. 17, which has had a rash of deadly wrecks, and more water and sewer services in rural areas to help development. "I'm not talking about Hilton Head development, I'm not talking about Charleston development," he said.
