Fort Mill's Rogers to kick off House campaign

Fort Mill native Greg Rogers will formally declare his bid for the state House next week, adding his name to what could be a crowded field of contenders.

Rogers, a partner in a development firm run by York County Councilman Paul Lindemann, plans a campaign event Monday at 12:30 p.m. at Hall Dielectric Machinery of Rock Hill.

Rogers is among the Republicans vying to replace Rep. Carl Gullick, R-Lake Wylie, who plans to resign this summer and move to Kentucky, where his wife has taken a new job.

Also expected to run are Roger Costner, founder and CEO of Brothers Air and Heat; and Sammy Rhodes, owner of a Rock Hill-based billboard company.

On the Democratic side, Pansy King-Reid of Fort Mill declared her bid last month. A Chester native, King-Reid is the sister of state Rep. John King, now serving his first term in the House.

Rogers touts his lifelong ties to York County. A Winthrop University graduate, Rogers grew up in Tega Cay and attended Fort Mill High School. He recently re-started a Fort Mill chapter of the Jaycees organization.
