Richland County Councilman Calvin “Chip” Jackson will serve in a new leadership position within the South Carolina Association of Counties (SCAC).
Jackson was elected vice president of the SCAC’s County Council Coalition during the group’s Oct. 24 meeting in Columbia.
The SCAC, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, works to provide education and training, legislative reporting, research and technical assistance to county governments. The County Council Coalition includes representatives from all 46 S.C. counties and allows them to take a leadership role in shaping the SCAC’s legislative policy positions.
“It is an honor to serve as vice president of the coalition,” Jackson said. “The coalition and the state association’s staff do significant work for all 46 counties in South Carolina. I am proud to be part of that work.”
Jackson previously served as the coalition’s secretary. He has represented District 9 on Richland County Council since January 2017.
