Letter to the Editor
August 5, 2015
Shortly after South Carolina State Senator Joel Lourie announced that he would not run again, Nexsen Pruet attorney Bob Coble wrote a letter to the editor of Columbia's The State newspaper.
In it, Coble thanks Lourie and his family for being Palmetto State leaders for nearly five decades.
Sen. Joel Lourie and his family have served our community and state for many generations — in business, in the legal profession and in public service. Joel’s father, the late Sen. Isadore Lourie, served in the Legislature from 1965 to 1992, and Joel Lourie has served in the Legislature since 1998, the past 11 years in the Senate. For almost 50 years both Sen. Lourie and his father have fought for progressive legislation in education, for senior citizens, economic development, the environment, health care and many other areas.
