About the Sponsor:

Brenda Stewart is a conservative political activist working at both the state and local level to put the right candidates in office and hold them accountable. In August of 2017 she helped raise awareness about the “phone line to nowhere” in the Laurens County Government and pushed for the telephone audit to move forward against the desire of some on County Council. The audit resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings for the county moving forward.
