Tammie Avant, one of the candidates removed from next week’s Republican Primary ballot after her ethics filings were deemed ineligible, has announced she will continue to seek the office of clerk of court, but as a petition candidate.
Avant says she has met with the Board of Elections and obtained the necessary paper work to begin gathering signatures for my petition.
“I am asking the registered voters of Georgetown County to sign the petition and have my name placed on the ballot in the November General Election. We need 2005 signatures by July 16. With your help we can achieve this goal,” she said.
Avant said petitions are already being circulated in the county and can be found at the following locations: Pawleys Island Supplies, the Ball-n-Que restaurant, Winyah Chiropractic Clinic, The Cuttin Edge Barber Shop, New Beginnings Salon, The Gathering Place and the Colonial Florist.
If she is successful in obtaining the required number of signatures, Avant will face incumbent Clerk of Court Alma White in November.
