Dan Tripp, Chairman
District 28

Dan Tripp was elected in November of 2018 to represent Greenville County Council District 28, which includes large portions of Mauldin, Simpsonville, and the Five Forks area. He currently serves as Chairman of Greenville County Council.

Over his years of public service, Dan has learned that the best leaders listen to their constituents, learn and understand all sides of the complex issues they face, and then lead with strength and conviction.

Prior to being elected to Greenville County Council, Dan represented the Golden Strip on the Greenville Legislative Delegation Transportation Committee – or C-Funds Committee – which approves funding for improvements to municipal, county, and state roads in Greenville County.

In 1994, Dan was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives and represented the Golden Strip and Southern Greenville County areas in the legislature for 12 years. While in Columbia, Dan compiled a “squeaky-clean” conservative and business-friendly voting record. In 2006, Dan voluntarily left the legislature and returned to private life.

Tripp is a serial entrepreneur and founded his latest venture Advocacy Architects, LLC to assist his business clients in managing legislative threats in state capitols across the United States. The company designs world-class advocacy campaigns that connect community advocates with their legislative leaders.

Dan resides in Greenville with his wife and family. Dan earned an undergraduate degree from Suffolk University in Boston and an MBA from Winthrop University in Rock Hill.
