Letters to the Editor

Re-elect Paul Peterson

I am writing this letter to strongly encourage voters to support Paul Peterson, incumbent candidate for District 5 on the Horry County Board of Education, in the upcoming election on June 12.

Since arriving as a professor at Coastal Carolina two years ago, I have had the privilege to talk extensively with Paul about his elected position. In these conversations, Paul’s devotion to improving education and maintaining the highest academic standards has been made clear. He is also an avid follower of local high school athletics and other extra-curricular events, which I believe is important to anyone who has a seat on the board.

Because of these qualifications, I encourage voters in District 5 to go to the polls on June 12 to help re-elect Paul Peterson.
