As your representative, Josiah shares your frustration with state government. He has consistently worked to clean up Columbia, fighting for reform in the roads and transportation system, state employee pensions, legislative bureaucracy, judicial election process, 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+ in 2017 and again in 2019 from the Club for Growth. He was also awarded a 100% 2019 score from the SC Republican Liberty Caucus along with only seven other legislators. 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.
