|Info||Curtis Loftis is the only conservative, reform candidate running for State Treasurer. |
Curtis believes in smaller, more efficient government, lower taxes and complete transparency within state government – no matter how uncomfortable it makes the bureaucrats, lobbyists and elected officials.
Curtis believes the people of South Carolina deserve decisive leadership and strong representation.
His business skills will greatly serve him as a voting member of the State Budget and Control Board – where his focus will be protecting the taxpayer. Curtis will consistently cast votes to streamline state government, lower your taxes, reduce the state debt and stop government intrusion into your life. Government insiders have controlled your money for too long. Now is the time to elect someone who will battle the ‘good ole boy’ system.
– To run a completely transparent Treasurer’s office;
- To stop the practice of using public monies to promote the State Treasurer on TV;
- To promptly post important financial records, reports and documents on the Internet;
- To “term limit” himself to two terms;
- To keep his entire schedule on the Internet for everyone to see;
- To refuse the fulltime use of a state car; and,
- To refuse to draw a check from the State Retirement System.
Curtis’ campaign will be God centered – with a frank and straight forward message – focused on protecting the people of South Carolina from government insiders.

His primary areas of interest in the mission fields are the housing and medical care of the elderly, and the care and education of orphans.
