Letters to the Editor

Letter | Edmonds has earned return to post

I am writing this letter in support of Judge Deirdre Edmonds who is seeking re-election to her fourth term as Horry County Probate Court Judge. Judge Edmonds is an intelligent and experienced lawyer, judge and leader. I am honored to endorse her for re-election.

As the former Solicitor of the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit, I worked closely with Judge Edmonds in her capacity as presiding judge of the Horry County Drug Court. I have witnessed first-hand Judge Edmonds’ exceptional work ethic, compassion and dedication to those who appear before her.

She has made remarkable improvements to the Horry County Probate Court and is vital to the continuing success of the Horry County Drug Court program.

Judge Edmonds’ legal expertise and experience are essential to the office of Probate Judge. She is a great asset to our community and we cannot afford to lose her as our Probate Judge. I wholeheartedly endorse Judge Deirdre Edmonds’ re-election.

The writer is now an S.C. senator.
