Elections board discusses supervisor role

The Glynn County Board of Elections held a special-called meeting Monday to discuss a job listing for its recently-vacated supervisor positions.

The board fired former Elections and Registration Supervisor Monica Couch following a discussion in closed session at its regular meeting last week.

Board members voted to approve the listing with some changes. They removed a section detailing the skills and attitudes an applicant should have among other things.

Board member Sandy Dean said anyone who meets the qualifications will likely have most of the skills listed, and the others can be determined during an interview.

They also discussed whether to hire a new supervisor on an annual contract basis or to keep it an at-will position. Further discussion on the subject will take place at the board’s next regular meeting, which is scheduled for 10 a.m. Jan. 8.
