Demand Your State Rep. Jerry Carter Makes Powerful Appointments at Public Meetings in Pickens

The Pickens County Legislative Delegation is made up of all state Representatives and state Senators from Pickens – state Reps. Neal Collins, Davey Hiott, West Cox, Jerry Carter, and state Senators Rex Rice and Thomas Alexander.

 

A new report shows that Pickens County legislators appoint local judges, powerful bureaucrats that decide what our kids get taught in school and folks that oversee our elections.

The candidates for these powerful positions should be appointed at public, regularly scheduled meetings in Pickens County so we can vet them and hold our legislators accountable for their job performance.

 

Pickens County legislators refuse to do that.

 

In fact, state Senator Rex Rice (the Chairman of the County Legislative Delegation) has admitted they make appointments by PRIVATE EMAIL.

 

NO transparency.

 

NO public meetings.

 

NO vetting candidates.

 

NO accountability.

 

The result?

  • a radical social justice activist was appointed to the Pickens County Election Board without any vetting from citizens
  • our county and state roads continue to crumble
  • our kids are being taught things in school that we didn’t approve or agree to (including CRT and Common Core)

 

If you want take power back from these politicians, this secrecy needs to end.

 

There is currently an opening on the Pickens County Board of Elections after an untimely death.

 

Your state Rep. Jerry Carter will appoint his replacement.

 

Will your state Rep. Jerry Carter hold a public meeting where we can vet the candidates and see how they vote?

 

Or will your state Rep. Jerry Carter appoint them secretly over email?

 

Call and/or text him with a simple message:

 

“The appointment to fill the opening on the Board of Elections – and ALL other appointments – needs to be made at a public meeting in Pickens that I can attend and vet the applicants. No more appointments made in secret over private emails!”

 

Please let us know how he responds.
