Fry, Servant debate issues facing state, South Strand

Eliminating government waste and streamlining South Carolina’s education system are atop the list of priorities for the two Republican candidates vying for the S.C. House District 106 seat.

Russell Fry, 30, and Tyler Servant, 24, will square off in a runoff Tuesday for the S.C. House District 106 seat, formerly held by Nelson Hardwick, who resigned after 10 years in the seat amid allegations that he harassed a female House staffer.

The two debated the issues at an event hosted by the South Strand Republican Club Thursday at the Horry County South Strand Recreation Center. The district serves the Surfside Beach and Garden City Beach area.
