Election Commission meets June 6 to certify unopposed candidates

Published on Wednesday, May 30, 2012

The City of Greer Election Commission will meet on Wednesday, June 6 at City Hall to certify the unopposed candidates for the municipal election.

If certified, Mayor Rick Danner, District 1 councilman Jay Arrowood, District 3 councilwoman Kimberly Bookert, and District 5 councilman Wryley Bettis would take the oath of office for their new terms at the regularly scheduled Greer City Council meeting on June 12.

The City of Greer’s municipal general election on July 24 will have just one contested race. Incumbent Perry Williams and Jerry Balding are seeking the seat of Commissioner of Public Works, an at-large office that will be determined in the July 24 municipal general election.

Based on filings for the mayoral and three city council elections, South Carolina law mandates that the unopposed incumbents be declared the winners in their respected races.

Charles Lindsay originally filed to run for the District 3 seat on Greer City Council, but was declared ineligible by the State Ethics Commission, which reported that it did not receive from him a Statement of Economic Interests and Campaign Disclosure Report.
