A Letter to the Editor describing some of our reasons for adding at least one at-large seat to the Pickens County School Board is being sent to the local media.
Currently, a 2/3 majority must vote to pass any action. Candidates for school board have stated that an odd number of members would be better.
We are circulating a petition to add an at-large seat.
