The Town of Saluda still does not have a police chief.  After a 2-2 deadlock between Pat Griffith and Lamaz Robinson at the last Town Council meeting, Council did not take any action at a called meeting Mon., Mar. 18.

Griffith was supported by Mayor Frank Addy and Councilwoman Anissa Turner, while Councilmen Obie Combs and Doug Butler voted for Robinson.

The fourth council member John Mark Griffith recused himself from voting because he is Pat Griffith’s brother.

The three finalist for the job are all Saluda County natives.

Griffith graduated from Saluda High School, Spartanburg Methodist College and the University of South Carolina with a degree in criminal justice.  After graduating he began his law enforcement career with the Saluda County Sheriff’s Office before working with the Probation Offices of Greenwood and  Saluda counties from 1991-2010

Robinson is a graduate of Saluda High School and attended Lander University and Piedmont Tech. He has currently a sergeant-investigator with the Johnston Police Department, where he has served since 2004. He worked as a jailor with the Saluda County Sheriff’s office in 2003-2004.

The third finalist Kes Holmes is a graduate of King Academy and Lander University with a degree in business administration. He is currently a member of the Saluda Police Department. He has had two stints with the Saluda County Sheriff’s Office, 2001-2005 and 2009-2012.
