January 12, 2022 - Publisher's note: Due to a publishing SNAFU, I have been remiss in my duties, here at BCN, regarding the proper categorization of county government publications; in particular, the Enhanced County Government Videos, begun August 1, 2019.
Therefore, to thoroughly correct this miscue, I will make the proper categorical correction, and bring these archives forward beginning on January 12, 2022; mixing these historical patterns of fact in with the current news of our day. Some posts brought forward will not be video broadcasts, but most informative posts as to who and what you Beaufort County Commissioners are, and how they govern.
On November 12, 2020 at 6:30 pm, the Republican County Commissioners and County Commissioner-elect Randy Walker, R, met as a caucus within the former county commissioner chambers at 121 West Third Street, Washington, North Carolina.
The purpose of this publicly advertised caucus, called by Republican Commissioner-elect Randy Walker
, was to openly discuss and select for nomination a board chairman and vice-chairman, since, with the election of Mr. Walker, the Republican Commissioners did enjoy a super majority. In the past, the pre-selection of the county commissioners' chairman and vice-chairman of the Beaufort County Board was done by secret communications by a hybrid of some Republican and the Democratic Socialist board members
The Beaufort County Republican Caucus of elected commissioners was promptly opened at 6:30 pm and was duly concluded at 6:36 pm. During that meeting, the Republicans decided who would be nominated to serve as chairman and vice-chairman, and who would make those nominations. In attendance for the Beaufort County Republican Caucus of elected commissioners was Beaufort County Commissioners Hood Richardson, R, and Stan Deatherage, R, with Republican Commissioner-elect Randy Walker. Absent from the Republican Caucus was Beaufort County Commissioners Frankie Waters, R, and John Rebholz, R. All Republican County Commissioners elected to serve their Beaufort County constituents, post December 7, 2020, were invited to attend.
