Paine Bacon has qualified as a Republican candidate for the Bryan County Board of Education’s District 1 seat being vacated by Mary Warnell. Bacon is facing Mindy Boyette in the Republican nomination for the post in the primary election on July 20.
“My family has been in business in this community for 50 years,” Bacon said. “This community means a great deal to me. I feel that there is no better way to repay the people of District 1 than to serve on the board of education and ensure that the children of this county receive the education necessary to guarantee a successful future.”
Although this is his first time running for public office, Bacon is no stranger to politics. His father, Harold D. Bacon, is a former Bryan County commissioner, and his uncle, Perry Bacon, is a former superintendent of the school system. Bacon also has several other relatives that have served in other elected offices in Bryan County.
Bacon is an elder at the Pembroke Christian Church, where he is a former chairman of the board. He is the treasurer of Park Place Outreach, dba the Savannah Runaway Home, where he is also the chair of the finance committee. In addition, Bacon serves on the Emerging Leaders Committee of the Savannah Community Foundation.
Bacon is a certified public accountant licensed in Georgia and South Carolina. He works for Holland, Henry & Bromley LLP in Savannah, where he is a manager.
Bacon is a life-long resident of District 1 in Bryan County. He resides south of Pembroke with his wife Toni, a counselor at Bryan County Middle School, and his step-daughter Lauren, a student at Bryan County High School.
