Demand Your State Senator Rex Rice to Make Powerful Appointments at Open Public Meetings in Pickens

A new report shows how Pickens County state legislators appoint and control powerful bureaucrats that are responsible for:

  • Choosing the curriculum and textbooks in our kid’s school
  • Fixing local roads
  • Overseeing our elections

Currently, there is an opening on the Pickens County Board of Elections, and the deadline to apply was yesterday (August 31).

 

The candidates for this powerful position should be appointed at a public meeting in Pickens County so we can vet them and hold our legislators accountable for their job performance.

 

Sadly, Pickens County state legislators refuse to do that.

 

Two years ago, there was a previous opening on the Pickens Board of Elections.

 

Rather than hold open public meetings, state Senator Rex Rice (Chairman of the Legislative Delegation) admitted they made the appointment OVER EMAIL. 

 

NO transparency.

 

NO public meetings.

 

NO vetting candidates.

 

NO accountability.

 

The result?

 

A far-left liberal activist was appointed to the Pickens County Board of Elections.

 

After last year’s election, many people had reasonable questions to ask about the integrity of election processes.

 

How did the far-left Board of Elections member respond?

 

By telling conservatives to “shut up” on Facebook (see picture below).

 

 

Pickens County deserves to have honest, neutral people of high integrity overseeing their elections…

…not condescending elitists who were appointed in secret.

 

But make no mistake – if your state legislators are able to make this appointment over private emails, you could easily end up with another far-left activist on the Board of Elections.

 

Your state Senator Rex Rice needs to hear from you today.

 

This appointment could be made at any time.

 

Put pressure on your state Senator Rex Rice immediately. 

 

Here’s your state Senator Rex Rice’s phone number: 864-884-0408

 

Call and/or text them with a simple message:

 

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