Two more candidates file in county

By Bill Colvard -

Two Democratic candidates filed to run for county office on Monday, joining Republicans already in the race.

Karen Osburn-Chandler, a Thurmond Democrat, threw her hat in the ring for County Commissioner-South District. She is the only challenger so far to incumbent Republican Eddie Harris.

Incumbent sheriff Jimmy Combs, a Democrat who took office in April 2017 following the retirement of Sheriff Graham Atkinson, filed for re-election on Monday joining a crowded slate of four Republicans who have thus far filed.

No candidates filed on Tuesday. Filing remains open for most offices in the county until Feb. 28 at 12 noon.
