The 30-day clock to appoint a new sheriff began ticking last Tuesday when former sheriff Ronald Hewett resigned.
Members of the Brunswick County Democratic Party Executive Committee are set to cast their ballots May 10 for the county’s next sheriff.
The group will meet at 10 a.m. at the party headquarters, Old Ocean Highway, between Supply and Bolivia.
County commissioners will then appoint the Democrat’s nominee as sheriff.
Since Hewett’s suspension March 27, county coroner Greg White has been serving as sheriff, per state law.
