Elections Board Dismisses Complaint
HY TERRY POPE
A candidate who losl her seal on the Doshcr
Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees in
November has also lost her bid for a new elec
The Brunswick County Board of Elections
Monday dismissed a complaint filed by Evelyn
"Teal" Butler, who claims the makeup of the
Nov. 5 ballot was irregular and may have aflcct
cd the outcome of the race.
An incumbent, Ms. Butler lost her seat on the
board. She filed notice that she would protest the
election before the final results were in.
Monday's action means newcomer Ciib
Barbee will win a scat along with Eugene B.
Tomlinson Jr. and incumbent Chairman Charles
B. Johnson. Tomlinson, who was chosen by
Brunswick County Commissioners to replace
Doug Lcdgett, was the only candidate to file for
an unexpired four-year term on the board. His
race was separated on the ballot from one in
volving four candidates vying for two six-year
Ms. Butler's attorney, Robert Serra, claims the
races had never been separated on the ballot be
tore and thai it gave an unfair advantage to
Tomlinson. Ms. Butler was not at Monday's
meeting, and Serra said he did not know if she
would want to appeal the board's ruling to the
State Board of Elections.
By law, an appeal must be received by the
elections board within 24 hours after it has hand
ed down a written decision on a complaint.
However, because the office will be closed Dec.
24 through 26, the board voted unanimously to
give Serra until 1 1 a.m. Friday to file an appeal.
A copy of any appeal must also be forwarded
by the complainlant to the stale office within
live days of the local board's decision
The decision approved Monday contains 42
findings of fact and a conclusion ol law that
states the complaint is dismissed "because there
is not substantial cvidencc of a violation of the
election law or other irregularity or misconduct".
Elections Board Attorney David Clcgg said
the Nov. 5 ballot was printed in accordance with
the guidelines set under state law.
The facts were approved by the board, with
Chairman Glenda Walker adding, "I find them
all to be true, to the best that I can determine."
She offered lo open the elections office on
Tuesday, Christinas Eve, so Serra could file an
appeal on time if he wished U) do so. Hut Serra
said he did not know if he could reach Ms.
Butler by then.
Monday's findings indicate that a l')HS ballot
for the trustee board contained an unexpired
term but was not separated on the ballot. Hie
form for thai ballot, the findings state, "was in
consistent with the provisions" ol die state
Clegg said he received a notice in 1987 from
the Suite Attorney General's office that recom
mends candidates lor unexpired terms be sepa
rated on the ballot from candidates seeking lull
Sample ballots lor the Nov. 1 election were
available at the elections ofllcc, but no one in
spected them, the board findings state.
Also, it said newspaper rc|x>ris ol the election
were inconsistent. I"he Brunswick Beacon was
the only local newspaper that correctly reported
Tomlinson was running for an unexpired term
and that his race would be separated on the bal
lot from the race lor two six-year terms.
County Losing Job Tax Credit Status
Brunswick County is no longer
eligible for income tax credits for
new or expanding employers, ac
cording to the N.C. Dept. of Econ
omic and Community Development.
However, as one of 50 "most dis
tressed" counties in the state,
Brunswick County remains eligible
to participate in the Industrial
Building Renovation Fund program
According to Thomas A. Monks,
executive director of the Resources
Development Commission for
Brunswick County, businesses plan
ning to move into the county or 10
expand an existing industry within
Brunswick County must act quickly
to lock in job lax credits for an addi
tional 24 months.
They must submit a letter of com
miimcni to ihe RDC officc no later
than Dec. 31 to reserve the crcdits.
Monks recommends that if a firm
or a firm's client is considering a de
cision relating to the creation of
jobs, that decision include the fac
tors relating to job tax credits.
Brunswick County was taken off
the state's list this week of "severely
distressed" counties eligible for the
program. The designation of
"severely distressed" counties is
made each December, based on a
proccss that involves a 36-months
ranking of two distress faaors: per
capita income and unemployment.
New jobs created in "severely
distressed" counties can result in a
tax credit for each job created. The
credit, available to both existing and
new industry, is taken over a four
year period in amounts nol larger
than 50 percent of a firm's North
Carolina income taxes after the de
duction of all other lax credits.
Generally, the tax credit is com
puted at the rate of S2,8(X) for each
new job created over the threshold
of nine; jobs can be counted toward
earning tax credits if each job results
in 1 ,600 hours of work per year, the
job is intended to be held by one
employee the entire year and if the
employee is a resident of the county
or performs 50 percent of his duties
in the county.
Information on how employers
with existing operations or new em
ployers qualify for the job lax cred
its is available from Monks or from
the state department's Commerce
Finance Center in Raleigh.
F.ligible For Fund
Continuing eligibility for the
Fund means manufacturing linns in
Brunswick County can utilize fi
nancing opportunities of the Fund
where new jobs are added.
Program funds to renovate exist
ing industrial buildings or for direct
ly related infrastructure arc obtained
through a local government
unit ? county or municipality.
The maximum amount of financ
ing available is S1,2(X) for each job
created up to S250.000 or the cost of
renovation, whichever is less.
More information on both pro
grams is available from the North
Carolina Department of Economic
and Community Development
