Today’s Meeting of the Rotary Club of Georgetown was special in that we welcomed  Congressman Tom Rice who gave us a Congressional update from Washington, DC
A resident of Horry County since the age of 4, Tom Rice has a deep-rooted connection to the area. He recalled his youth, spending time at his Grandfather’s house on Screven Street in Georgetown and has a drawing of the Winyah Bay and Georgetown on his Congressional office wall in DC
Tom entered Congress with a commitment to make the United States as competitive as possible. From our country’s energy policies to tax rates, Tom spent his first two years in Congress advocating for common-sense reforms that will spur economic development and restore America’s competitive edge. He is most satisfied about having been appointed to the prestigious Ways and Means Committee, which he feels is the most important one in the House. Tom believes bipartisanship will have to return to Congress at some point, no matter who is elected President, to get important legislative bills passed on issues such as Income Tax and Social Security reform.

Tom earned both his master’s degree in accounting and his juris doctor from the University of South Carolina. After completing his degrees, Tom worked for the accounting and consulting firm, Deloitte & Touche, in Charlotte and earned his CPA certificate. In 1985, Tom returned to his home town of Myrtle Beach to practice tax law with the Van Osdell Law Firm, and in 1997 he established his own practice, the Rice & MacDonald Law Firm.
