SC-01: Joe Cunningham (D)
Joe Cunningham and his wife, Amanda, live in West Ashley where they are raising their son, Boone. Along for the ride is their five-year-old rescue dog, a terrier mutt named Teddy.
Cunningham spends about 100 days a year in D.C. and the rest of his days are spent all across his District meeting with and listening to constituents.
Before being elected to Congress, he practiced construction law downtown and, even before then, worked as an ocean engineer. Cunningham believes, “We all should be good stewards of the environment and I’m simply trying to do my part here and even more in Washington D.C. Occasionally, I have to blast air horns to educate people of the dangers of seismic testing and offshore drilling.”
He serves on the Veterans’ Affairs committee. His District has the highest concentration of veterans of any district in the state.
