On Oct. 21, 2020, a piece of mail was sent to voters in lower Richland that identified candidates for School Board as being endorsed by the South Carolina Democratic Party. The SCDP disavows this fraudulent mailer.
Executive Director Jay Parmley issued a statement. You can find it HERE.
The South Carolina Democratic Party has not endorsed any candidate in the non-partisan School Board race. The SCDP has referred this matter to investigators.
