New Dillon mayor, Corey Jackson, was immediately suspended upon taking office as mayor by Governor Henry McMaster. A copy of the order is attached to this post.
Jackson’s attorney, Rose Mary Parham, said, “Governor McMaster suspended Corey upon Corey taking office, which prompted Corey to have a private, rather than public, swearing-in ceremony. The Governor’s suspension is standard procedure for elected officials facing criminal charges. Corey maintains his innocence and looks forward to his day in court.”
