Deon Tedder Raises Over $20,000 in First Week of Campaign for House District 109
CHARLESTON, SC - Deon Tedder, Democratic candidate for State House District 109, announced on Friday that he raised over $20,000 in the first week of his campaign. Tedder, currently a lawyer at David Aylor Law Offices, announced his candidacy on March 23rd for the seat currently held by Rep. David Mack III, who recently announced his intention not to seek re-election.
Tedder is a graduate of South Carolina State University and the University of South Carolina School of Law. Tedder served as an intern in the office of the late Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy where he worked on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee. Tedder also served as a Guardian Ad Litem for Richland County’s Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program and represented indigent clients in courtroom proceedings in Magistrate Court through the USC School of Law’s Criminal Law Practice Clinic.
“I’m asking everyone in House District 109 for their vote and support in this very important election on June 9th,” said Tedder. “Many people in Charleston and Dorchester Counties are facing unprecedented financial challenges due to COVID-19 and to have this level of community support even in the midst of those challenges illustrates that folks are eager for a community-minded leader that will continue Rep. David Mack’s tireless work. I am grateful for the support I have received so far. We have to become even more aggressive about improving our public schools, increasing opportunities for high-paying jobs, and ensuring that everyone has access to affordable housing. I’m ready to lead District 109 by tackling these challenges head-on, and that is the kind of leader this district needs.”
