22 May Greg Searched for Qualified People, by Trudy M. Martin of Longs
Conventional wisdom says that “A true leader finds more leaders and a pretender keeps other talented people away.” I guess that’s because a pretender is afraid he or she will be found out.
Greg Duckworth, candidate for the District 104 Seat in the SC House of Representatives has proven that he is a true leader in this respect. He has shown his leadership ability many times during his work with Boy Scouts of America and while a member of the North Myrtle Beach City Council. Moreover, he has always identified new co-workers and potential replacements for his position when he was ready to move on to new challenges.
When Duckworth had to cut back on his time with the Boy Scouts, he identified and recruited highly qualified replacements to take his place. Duckworth made sure that the quality he brought to the organization would continue to build once he left.
When Duckworth was a member of the NMB City Council, he searched for qualified individuals to run for office when a vacancy occurred, including his own. He actively recruited at least two individuals to run for office who subsequently won their elections.
Greg Duckworth is a “true leader” who isn’t afraid of qualified people. He seeks them out, mentors them, and helps them become leaders.
I want a leader to represent me in Columbia. I’m voting for Greg Duckworth on June 10th. Please join me in making sure we get a qualified Representative in District 104. Vote for Greg Duckworth.
