Williamsburg County Supervisor Tiffany Cooks aims for smooth transition, no lame duck period

Williamsburg County public service building

Williamsburg County Supervisor Tiffany Cooks committed to a smooth transition process to the new administration, but also asserted that she will continue to do her job until her term expires.

Cooks was defeated by Kelvin Washington in a primary election June 14.

“There will be no for lack of better term, shenanigans. We will make sure that we position our new supervisor for his success,” Cooks said during the June 21, County Council meeting. “It is very important to us that no matter what has happened or what will happen in the future that we put people in alignment to succeed.”

Washington made a point during the campaign that once the result was in, that everyone in the county had to move on.

Cooks said that part of the transition process will be a detailed plan submitted to county council, Washington and to the public that includes the status of projects currently going on in the county.

While Cooks will be aiming for an easy transition, she insists that she will be doing the job she was elected to do until her term is finished in December.

“We will also continue to work in this administration, there will be no lame duck syndrome,” Cooks said. “We will continue through December 31.”
