CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston County auditor is filing for re-election on Wednesday despite previously stating she would not.

Peggy Moseley issued a statement Wednesday explaining her decision.

"Due to the outpouring support from taxpayers, colleagues, and county staff, I have decided I will run for re-election. I want to continue working on issues such as: the Manatron computer system; lowering the assessment rates for boats and airplanes, and auditing vehicles with out-of-state licenses."

She added, "I look forward to running a campaign, grounded on issues, and I'll continue to put the taxpayers first."

Three men have already filed for the election.  Republicans David Engleman and Paul Gawrych and Democrat Peter Tecklenburg.

Moseley, a Republican, was first elected back in 1992. She won re-election in 1996, 2000, 2004, and again in 2008.
