School Board Redistricting Plan Creates New Seat, Pits Incumbents Against Each Other

web posted April 24, 2014

COUNTY The Proposed map submitted to the Edgefield County School Board Tuesday night creates a second Merriwether seat, but takes the current board member out of Merriwether and puts her mainly in the Westside. It also places School Board members William Herrin and Bridget Clark against each other to serve the same district.

Sitting board member Brad Covar's district becomes more of a Northside district rather than Edgefield. Carol Wates' district would encompass all of Johnston and most of Edgefield.

Board member LaToya Hammond has the most convoluted district, running from a portion of Merriwether, Highway 25, to the Westside and eastern on southern parts of Edgefield.

The proposed map can be viewed here.

The final map will be created by the area Legislative Delegation for approval. They can be contacted from the information below.
