in Uncategorized by

More than 100 local Democrats attended the Beaufort County Democratic Party Convention last weekend at Penn Center’s Darrah Hall.

State Representative Bakari Sellers (D-Denmark), Democratic candidate for Lt. Governor, was the keynote speaker.  The son of civil rights leader Dr. Cleveland Sellers, he has served in the South Carolina Statehouse since 2006.  At the time of his election, Sellers was the youngest serving member of the SC House.

In addition to the election of officers, as well as delegates to the State Democratic Convention and approval of several resolutions, the party honored local Democrats who have earned recognition and remembered those who passed on.

Anyone interested in participating in the local party should contact Beaufort County Party Chairman Blaine Lotz at gblotz@yahoo.com or 843-363-5204.
