Charleston County Council will vote tomorrow evening on who will hold the positions of chairman and vice chairman in 2013. To win, a candidate must have the votes of at least five of the nine council members.
Itís likely that county leadership wonít change. Teddie Pryor, a Democrat, likely will remain chairman for the fifth-consecutive year. Elliott Summey, a Republican, likely will hold on to the vice chairman post for the fourth consecutive year.
Pryor and Summey represent portions of North Charleston. Pryor works as the tourism coordinator for the city of North Charleston. Summey works as the senior vice president for real estate developer Weber USA and is the son of North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey.
Pryor said four council members have told him they support him holding onto the position, which including his own vote would give him the majority.
Summey said he thinks he, Pryor, Anna Johnson, Henry Darby and Vic Rawl will vote for Pryor for chairman. Summey also said he thinks the same five members will support him holding the vice chairmanís seat.
It remains unclear who else is in the running for either the chairman of vice chairman post.
