Leading for Local Values.

Honest.  Courageous.  Representative.

Fighting for the Future

Josiah Magnuson has been active and involved as your representative.  He possesses the unique ability to respect and work with people of any ideological viewpoint while standing firm to vote according to his deep conservative convictions.  Josiah understands that the future of our country is at stake today, and that's what gives him the courage to fight for our families.


As your representative, Josiah shares your frustration with state government.  He has consistently worked to clean up Columbia, fighting to reform the roads and transportation system, state employee pensions, legislative bureaucracy, election of judges, and more.  Josiah is working with other conservatives in the House and Senate to develop common sense solutions that will make South Carolina a better place.  He believes greater liberty and greater government accountability will lead to greater prosperity.


Josiah has been true to his promises: voting against the gas tax hike, fighting to define life at conception, building bridges toward real judicial reform, helping organize a new Family Caucus to stand together for traditional values, and vocally advocating for the First, Second, and Tenth Amendments.  


A small government champion, Josiah Magnuson was awarded an A+, a higher grade than any other House member in 2017, from the Club for Growth. Josiah has consistently worked to defend the taxpayer against ever-growing state spending.  He believes the priorities in Columbia are often in the wrong places.  One example occurred during the 2018 budget debate when Josiah advocated for $5 million in funding for school resource officers, but the House voted down his amendment and instead spent the money on tourism advertising!  (Fortunately, after public response, $2 million was placed in the budget for SROs, which was raised to $10 million in 2019.)  Josiah seeks to fully fund core functions of government like our roads, education, courts, and law enforcement rather than throwing money away on pet projects.


Josiah lives out his belief in transparency.  Since his election, Josiah has held monthly town hall events, provided consistent email updates on how he is voting, and been responsive on Facebook and by phone.  You can call his personal cell at 864-420-7933, or connect directly with him on Facebook at www.fb.com/magnusonsc.
