ROCK HILL, S.C. - U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., is the second guest for Winthrop’s new lecture series sponsored by the John C. West Forum on Politics and Policy.
On March 22, Mulvaney will speak about his experiences as a freshman member of the U.S. House of Representatives and issues facing the U.S. Congress. He will speak at 5:30 p.m. at Dina’s Place in the DiGiorgio Campus Center.
Rep. Mulvaney, a resident of Indian Land in Lancaster County, this year became the first Republican to represent the Fifth District since 1883, after being elected in November. He has practiced law with James, McElroy & Diehl in Charlotte, N.C., started his own firm and then went into the family homebuilding and real estate business.
Elected to the S.C. House in 2006, he then won a seat in the S.C. Senate before being elected to Congress.
U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn spoke at the first Winthrop Congressional event on Feb. 23.
The Congressional Lecture Series will include invitations to South Carolina’s two U.S. Senators, Republicans Lindsay Graham and Jim DeMint, later in the year. All Congressional Lecture Series events will be free and open to the public, with Winthrop students given priority in Q&A opportunities with the guest lecturers.
The mission of the John C. West Forum on Politics and Policy is to promote civic engagement in South Carolina. The nonpartisan West Forum is named in the memory of the former South Carolina Governor and U.S. Ambassador, John C. West. The West Forum is funded by an annual gift from the West Foundation.
