Larry puts families first. He was born here, grew up here, and with his wife Carol, raised their three sons here. Working to make the Lowcountry a better place to live, work, and raise a family is his top priority.

The Lowcountry is a special place where we live, work, and raise our families.  State Senator Larry Grooms has an unmatched record of fighting for our families, protecting our scenic spaces and natural resources, bringing in new jobs, creating greater opportunities, and keeping our families safe. Because this is our home!

Larry has recruited high paying employers like Boeing. Volvo and Google to our area. He knows that a job should be more than just a paycheck. Larry is a successful businessman who knows that new jobs create greater opportunities, bring a sense of security, a higher quality of life and a brighter tomorrow.

Senator Grooms wrote and passed the key amendment to the new 10-year improvement program that will finally fix South Carolina’s roads.  The program ensures that out-of-state drivers pay their fair share.  Results are already being seen in the Lowcountry: In Berkeley and Charleston counties alone, already nearly 400 roads, road segments, bridges and interstates have been repaved, widened, made safer, or otherwise improved.

Larry Grooms is a consistent supporter of raising teacher pay. He’s fought to cut government red tape from the classroom and he won the Golden Apple Award for his commitment to K-12 education. And he wrote South Carolina’s successful and widely praised plan that provides Educational Scholarships for Exceptional Needs Children, giving special needs students access to education they might not otherwise have.
