The Lady’s Island Business and Professional Association will conduct a forum at its Tuesday, May 8, meeting for Ms. Jerri Ann Roseneau (incumbent) and Mr. Ray Garza, who are candidates in the June 12 Republican Primary for Office of Beaufort County Clerk of the Court.
It should be noted that, since there is not a Democratic candidate for the office, unless there is a petition candidate, the June primary election will in effect determine the next Clerk of the Court. As with all LIBPA candidate forums, the order of speaking will be alphabetical, each candidate will be allowed 10 minutes to speak on any subject they choose to address with the remaining time devoted to questions and answers. Following the question and answer period, each candidate will be provided three minutes for a final summary. The following are subjects that may be of interest to LIBPA members during the question and answer period.
• Have adequate checks and balances been implemented in the Clerk of the Court office to avoid misuse of public funds?
• What is the biggest future challenge to the Clerk of the Court?
• What qualifications should the Clerk of the Court possess?
• What changes would you make in the office of the Clerk of the Court?
The forum will be held on Tuesday, May 8, at the Beaufort County Realtor’s Association Headquarters located in the Palmetto Business Park (behind BB&T) on Lady’s Island Drive and is open to the public.
