Bernard Richburg

Non-partisan candidate for Clarendon County School Board District 1.


Occupation: Full-time Pastor

Education: Bachelors of Science, Masters of Divinity, Doctorate of Sacred Theology and Pastoral Counseling and Philosophy.

Experience in Political or Related Positions:

My first political experience is my 8 years that I have served on the Clarendon School District One Board of Trustees.   I have also spent the past 12 years working with youths throughout Clarendon County.  I am readily available to assist families with counseling services. I have consistently advocated for all students in the district.  As the pastor of a local church, I am visible and supportive throughout the Clarendon One School Community. In summary, I strongly believe that my experiences as a retired Marine and law enforcement officer will continue to serve me well as I seek to continue my service to the community.

Why should voters choose you in this election?

The constituents in Clarendon School District One will be well represented by my continued service and leadership on the board.  During my tenure of service, I have supported polices that enhance academic growth of our students and the continued growth and success of the district.  There has been much improvement during the previous years:  Increased student achievement, fiscal stability, construction of much needed facilities and hiring of highly qualified staff.   I am looking forward to continuing my service to the constituents of Clarendon School District One.
