James Island holds first public forum as reincorporated town

Posted: Updated:

JAMES ISLAND, S. C. (WCIV) -- James Island held its first public forum Thursday since its reincorporation in April. The forum was sponsored by the LWVCA, AAUW, and Free James Island.

Seven candidates for council held a lively debate, and several James Island residents showed up to ask the candidates tough questions.

Kay Kernodle expressed her excitement about the town moving forward.

"Tonight is a history-making night because this is the first time the Town of James Island has been formed and is not being contested by the City of Charleston."

State Representative Peter McCoy says the future of the town is bright.

"We've worked too hard for us not to be a shining star, and for us not to be an example for other towns trying to bud up and become their own town as well."

Bill Woolsey, former mayor and the person who arguably led the charge in James Island's reincorporation, is running unopposed.

Seven people will run for four spots on council. Those include Linda Womack, Mary Beth Berry, Marilyn Clifford, Leonard Black, Sandi Engelman and Darren (Troy) Mullinax.

The actual election will be held on July 31st.
