The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee announced that it has endorsed five candidates running for the Charleston County School Board.
These five candidates include Todd Garrett, from downtown Charleston, Kevin Hollinshead and Russ Patterson, both from North Area, and Priscilla Jeffrey and Gary Leonard, both from West Ashley.
The candidates were endorsed for their "fiscal conservatism and their ability to comprehend the structure of government," according to an email sent out by the PAC.
Charleston County voters will be able to vote for all geographic areas no matter where they live, even though certain candidates are running for specific geographical seats.
The PAC also has endorsed Brantley Moody, who is running to represent District 7 on the Charleston County Council.
