“Our leaders in Columbia are too partisan, too divided, and aren’t getting enough done for the people back home," Wetmore said. "Working in local government, we don’t have the luxury of wasting time on politics. I’m running to bring a fresh perspective and focus on results."
Wetmore said preserving the environment will be her top priority.
“We’ve been given this beautiful piece of earth and it’s our job to protect it.” she said. "This includes fighting against the very real threat of offshore drilling, preserving water quality, and conserving our marshes and dunes."
Wetmore’s other top priorities include raising teacher pay and tackling traffic and over-development.
Wetmore is a graduate of Charleston’s Academic Magnet High School. She received a bachelor's degree from Princeton University and received her law degree from Vanderbilt University. She and her husband Burns live on Folly Beach and are raising two daughters, Brooks and Lola Kate.
