A County manger in the east is headed south to manage another county in our area. Camden County Manager Randell Woodruff has been selected Beaufort County's next manager.
At Tuesday's general meeting, by a vote of 6 to 1 with Commissioner Jay McRoy casting the lone dissenting vote, the Beaufort County Commissioners appointed the 54 year old executive to take over the reins from Interim County Manager Jim Chrisman.
Beaufort County's Chief Finance Officer Jim Chrisman has served as the interim county manager since former County Manager Paul Spruill left the chief executive position June 24th to become the new CEO of Tideland EMC. Jim Chrisman did not apply for the position and will return to his prior position as Beaufort County's CFO once Mr. Woodruff becomes manager September 5th
County Commissioner Stan Deatherage says Mr. Woodruff will be paid a annual salary of $110,000 with basically the same contract as the one enforced with County manager Paul Spruill.
