Dear Greenwood County, Our hearts are very saddened at the loss of a dear friend, Brian Hind, who was such a community minded man and contributed so much. He will be greatly missed. Unfortunately it falls to the Greenwood County Republican Central Committee to find his replacement for County Commissioner until the next election and we are bound by rules and a time frame that we must follow. This letter is to put your mind at ease that these things are being done and will be an open process. The county clerk has contacted the Secretary of State and they begin the steps to proceed. It is not required to advertise the position or meeting but the committee will be doing their best to keep you informed.
