Conservatives for Clean Energy – South Carolina Announces New Team Member
Hunter Sox Joins as South Carolina Communications Director
For Immediate Release
Columbia, S.C., Tuesday, January 16, 2024 – Conservatives for Clean Energy South Carolina (CCE-SC)
announced today that Hunter Sox will serve as the organization’s new Communications Director. Sox will
be the state organization’s go-to spokesperson and communications professional amplifying all-of-the-
above clean energy policies in the Palmetto State.
CCE-SC works to educate South Carolina’s lawmakers and constituents on the economic benefits of
clean energy. As South Carolina continues to benefit from the clean energy economy, recruiting major
clean energy manufacturers like Scout Motors, Redwood Materials, and AESC, who will employ nearly
10,000 South Carolinians alone, it is more important now than ever that South Carolina is committed to
advancing clean and renewable energy alternatives throughout the Palmetto State to spur new
competition and choice in the energy market.
No stranger to CCE-SC, Sox has worked with CCE-SC to host events and meetings with congressional
lawmakers and staff since early 2023 through the Conservative Energy Network’s annual Capitol Hill fly-
in. He has also played a leading role in educating state lawmakers on South Carolina’s clean energy
opportunities through various events, forums, and roundtables in Columbia and across the state.
“Hunter has been assisting us with our clean energy agenda for almost a year and has already hit the
ground running,” said CCE-SC State Director Nick Murray. “We are excited to have Hunter officially join
our team and help champion conservative, market-based clean energy solutions.”
Sox currently works as the Director of Public Affairs at First Tuesday Strategies (FTS), the state’s leading
hybrid political consulting and public affairs firm. He has worked in and around state-level politics since
2016 and joined FTS following a government affairs role and prior work with the South Carolina House
of Representatives. Sox also serves as a City Councilmember in Cayce, South Carolina, a suburb of
Columbia, the state’s capital.
“South Carolina has seen record-breaking capital investments in back-to-back years sparked by clean
energy investments,” said CCE-SC State Director Luke Byars. “Hunter will be a strong advocate for clean
energy policy and will help CCE-SC amplify these recent wins.”
“I am excited to continue building on the success CCE-SC has achieved over the past few years in advancing the clean energy sector of the Palmetto State economy,” said Sox. “I look forward to assisting CCE-SC in educating and advocating for cheaper, cleaner, and safer energy.”
