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.

    Well I can promise you that this will not be pretty....this guy is coming from a county that is 240 square miles, beaufort county is 840 sq miles, camden has a population of 9600, beaufort county has roughly 40-50,000....this guy may know how to micro manage a small community, but he is in for a rude awakening in this corrupt, political, backscratching community which he will soon be in charge of. His only hope is that he is just as crooked and lazy as the rest of the Beaufort County political team...Beaufort County is doing bad with the current situation and this will make it worse...Good luck though Mr. Woodruff!!
