Born and Raised in the Low Country
Born and raised in Hampton County, Brad has deep roots in the Low Country. His father Joe Mole III is a pastor, as well as a former public school teacher, police officer and firefighter. His mother Elizabeth operated his families welding and plumbing business.
Growing up in the Lowcountry taught Brad about the importance of community, where every member does their part to bring in success, and people help each other out when someone is in need. Being the son of a pastor meant late-night phone calls from community members seeking assistance or prayer when rough times or tragedy struck our community. Brad's father always answered the call, and taught him to do the same.
Brad graduated Wade Hampton High School, before attending Horry-Georgetown Tech and the University of South Carolina. Brad left school to start a small business with his sister Sherita.
Brad was inspired to run for office in 2020 to answer the call of leadership that's missing in Washington DC, and to bring the values of the Lowcountry to the capital of the country we share.
Washington politicians have failed to solve problems and to give a voice to hardworking, struggling people in communities across South Carolina's 1st District.
Brad, his wife Lalie, and their four children live in Bluffton, where he serves his community working as the town's Housing and Neighborhood Services Administrator
