Write-in-candidate announces for commission

The race for the District 4 county commission seat has suddenly gotten a little more crowded.
Longtime political activist Lynda Morse said Friday she will run as a write-in candidate against Republican nominee Butch Broome and independent qualifier Carter Infinger in a bid to replace current Commissioner Toby Roberts.
Roberts is stepping down after 20 years on the Bryan County Commission.
Broome outpolled Morse’s husband, Chris Morse, in the Republican primary in July. Lynda Morse said she spoke with both Broome and Infinger before deciding to run.
“They’re both very nice young men,” she said. “I just think that giving people a different perspective is important.”
Involved in politics through the Savannah Area Republican Women and the Georgia Federation of Republican Woman, Morse is a real estate broker who also describes herself as a mother, wife and grandmother.
She said her perspective as both a senior citizen and as woman will help her represent those constituencies. She’s also got experience as a volunteer as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for children.
“Things that make justice and fairness work appeal to me,” Morse said. “(Chris and I) have been involved in local politics for a long time now, and sometimes I’ve been a little more than vocal, but we believe in what we’re trying to do to really get the best representation for the people of this community. We’re very serious about it and think we can make a difference.”
