Former Chatham County Commission Chairman Billy Hair is running for the office again, making the announcement today in Wright Square.
During Hair’s two terms as Chairman from 1996 to 2004, "Chatham County prospered with unprecedented growth with a commission that was united and harmonious," the campaign said in a statement.
"Hair pledges to bring this same kind of experienced leadership to all of Chatham County for the next four years as Chairman."
A U.S. Army veteran, Hair holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in business from the University of South Carolina, as well as a doctorate degree in education from the University of Georgia.
Numerous other candidates are also expected to vie for the seat, including former Tybee Mayor Jason Buelterman.
