Congressman Timmons began his term in Congress committed to cleaning up Washington and fighting for the values of South Carolina’s 4th District.
His experience as a small business owner inspired him to run for public office because he was tired of overbearing government regulations and exploding health care costs. While he served as a state senator, he worked with his colleagues to find creative solutions to limit government and make it more accountable to taxpayers. He brings the same mindset to Capitol Hill in an effort to solve the biggest issues facing our nation.
One of Congressman Timmons’ core values is service to his country and community. During his time as a prosecutor with South Carolina’s 13th Circuit Solicitor’s office, his top priority was serving victims of domestic violence. Service is ultimately what motivated him to run for public office and to become a JAG Officer and First Lieutenant in the South Carolina Army National Guard.
Congressman Timmons is a lifelong member of Christ Church in Greenville. He studied law and International Studies at the University of South Carolina and holds degrees in International Affairs and Political Science from George Washington University. He currently serves on the Education and Labor, and Budget Committees, as well as the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress.
