We are happy to announce that Freshman Class President, Russell Fry will be speaking at our January Membership Meeting TOMORROW. If you aren’t already familiar with some of Rep. Fry’s previous work, please check out his biography below:
As Chief Majority Whip, Russell was instrumental in passing the Open Carry Act (the biggest advancement in Second Amendment rights in 25 years) and the Fetal Heartbeat Bill (the strongest prolife legislation ever approved by the General Assembly). Additionally, Russell helped shepherd through the South Carolina House the Religion is Essential Act, which prevents government from closing our churches’ doors. He also co-sponsored bills to expand school choice, ban vaccine passports, save women’s sports, close primaries from crossover political meddling, require ID to vote via absentee ballot, and establish term limits to end career politicians.
Before being elected to guard the faith, families, and freedom of his fellow citizens, Russell practiced law along the Grand Strand. He worked his way through Charleston School of Law where he served as president of the Student Bar Association, helped the school achieve its American Bar Association accreditation, and even received the prestigious Civility Award.
An Eagle Scout and Socastee High School alumnus, Russell graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in political science and a minor in business administration.
