Oconee Democrats have announced their support of a candidate next month for State Superintendent of Education. Dr. Tom Thomson is one of four candidates entered in the June 10 primary to decide the Democratic Party’s nominee. Last Saturday Thomson spoke to Oconee Democratic Party members and guests during a meeting at Seneca’s Gignilliat Center. In a news release, the Oconee Democrats say they have endorsed Thomson because they feel his credentials and experience are superior to all other candidates. Currently, Thomson serves as Dean of Graduate Studies at South Carolina State University.
