Hi, I'm Garry Smith (Republican Party) and I had the privilege of serving as a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives, representing District 27. I assumed office in 2003 and left office on 2022. It was an honor of a lifetime to serve the wonderful people of South Carolina and especially in District 27 comprising of Mauldin and Simpsonville.
I also had the priviledge of serving as a Affiliate Professor of Political Science at North Greenville University from 2017 until 2023. It was a very gratifying experience to teach an upper level class in State and Local Gevernment, and to engage with a great group of students.
I earned my B.A. in History from the University of South Carolina-Aiken in 1979. After that I went on to receive my M.P.A. specializing in Governmental Finance and Accounting from the University of South Carolina in 1983. Over the years some of my experiences include the managing partner of Nin Tai Enterprises, Vice President of Burkhold Smith Planning & Management, and as a businessman.
Before entering the SC House of Representatives I served as Manager of Work Contracts for the Aiken Adult Development Center, Roving City Administrator-Community Development Specialist for the Lower Savannah Council of Governments, Aiken County Assistant Administrator, Bamberg County Administrator, and City of Simpsonville Administrator.
I have been married to my wife Brenda Harman Smith for 44 years. We have been blessed with 2 children and 7 grandchildren.
