Ashley Landess, President of the South Carolina Policy Council, was the featured guest speaker at the January luncheon meeting of the Greenville County Republican Women’s Club at the Poinsett Club.
Landess and her non-profit organization have become known for their exposure of fraud and corruption in state government, as well as shortcomings in the public education system.
The Policy Council accepts no government funds, is nonpartisan and is totally dependent on private donations to fund their research and daily operations.
Landess, a native of the Upstate, has earned a reputation for being one of the most knowledgeable individuals regarding the operations of state government and the abuse of power by key individuals.
Her work has been a key part of removal of corrupt politicians from office.
Despite past accomplishments, South Carolina government continues to be run by a very few individuals in the Legislature. One State Senator has more power than all the other members combined. The research conducted by the Policy Council has exposed numerous instances of questionable conduct under his protection.
The policy council is hated by corrupt politicians and bureaucrats and could use financial and other support from citizens interested in good government.
