As the June 14 Republican primary draws nearer, the two candidates in one of Beaufort County’s most heated elections, the race for Sheriff, have been extremely busy on the campaign trail. Challenger JoJo Woodward and incumbent P.J. Tanner each held events last week. Woodward, left, listens as Ben Fennell of the Lowcountry Justice League asks questions about gun violence in the Grays Hill area and Woodward’s plans to address unsolved murders during a meet-and-greet event Wednesday afternoon at the Grays Hill Community Center. Woodward said he’d add new “cold case” investigators to help solve old cases and to re-open substations in the area closed by Tanner. At right, Sheriff Tanner speaks to a group of about 60 friends and supporters during a Barbeque and Conversation event on Friday hosted by Marge and Red Mitchell of Lady’s Island. Both candidates had events scheduled for this week, as well. Photos by Bob Sofaly.
