Analysis Of Oconee County Election Results Paints Complex Picture

***Tax Increases, Republicans, Get Support***

The results of the election in Oconee County last week do not follow a simple narrative.

Voters gave their strongest support to Post 2 Board of Education candidate Amy Parrish, an incumbent Republican who was unapologetic about her vote for the School Board’s request for a nearly 10 percent increase in property taxes.

Oconee voters gave their second strongest support to Republican Post 3 Board of Education candidate Ryan Hammock, who was muted in his criticism of the Board of Education.
