Cockrell files in District 1 County Council race

web posted March 29, 2008
EDGEFIELD – Brunson Community resident Jeanette S. Cockrell announced her plans this week to challenge Norman Dorn for the District 1 County Council seat of Edgefield County. “I have filed to run as a Republican candidate to represent Edgefield County in the District 1 County Council Seat,” Mrs. Cockrell said in a prepared statement at the time of her filing with Republican Party Chairman Ralph McFarland.

“I love Edgefield County,” Mrs. Cockrell said adding that she was born and raised here. “I have not taken this decision to seek this office lightly. This decision was made after careful prayer, consideration and conversations with family and friends. It is time for a change in Edgefield County.”

Jeanette is married to Billy Cockrell and they have three children and four grandchildren. She retired from Westinghouse Savannah River Company in 2006 and is a substitute teacher in the Edgefield County School District. She is currently working towards her South Carolina teaching certification through the Program of Alternative Certification for Educations (PACE).

Mrs. Cockrell attended Edgefield County Public Schools and graduated with Honors with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Management from Southern Wesleyan University in Central South Carolina.

She and her family attend church at the Living Word Fellowship in Trenton where she has been a Sunday School teacher and currently teaches Children’s Church.

Cockrell said, “I feel like I have been so blessed in my life. I really want to give something back to the community that I love so much. It is a time for change in the county council. We can see that county residents also feel the need for change.” Cockrell said changes recently in the economy, gas prices, and rising crime rates demonstrate the need for local government to make a strong showing for individual citizen’s needs and rights.

“Local citizens are struggling every day to make ends meet, keep food on the table and a roof over their head. I plan on going door to door to meet everyone in our district I don’t already know. I want to know your concerns and needs. What can I do to make your life better as a resident of District 1, should you decide to vote for a change by electing me. A vote for me will be a vote for honest, fair and unbiased change in the Edgefield County Council.”
