WEST ASHLEY, S.C. (WCIV) -- In Charleston County, a dozen candidates are vying for a chance to serve on the school board for West Ashley, a seat formerly held by John Barter.

The candidates are: Robert Ray Black, Howard Comen, Edward Fennell, Charles Fox, Charles Glover, Elisabeth Hills, Ian Kay, Burnet Mendelsohn, Anne Sbrocci, Troy Strother, Carol Tempel, and Emerson Tripp Wiles.

Next week, the county legislative delegation will announce its nomination.

That pick then has to be approved by Gov. Nikki Haley.

Once appointed, the new board member will serve until the general election in November.
