Former South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford is one of seven people seeking a seat on the board of the Charleston County Aviation Authority.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that six of the seven are women.

One of the others who have applied for the seat is Jordan Scott Pace, a field representative for Jenny Sanford's ex-husband, U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford.

Members of the Charleston County Legislative Delegation decide next week on who will fill the seat vacated when a board member accepted a seat on the board of the Medical University of South Carolina.

The aviation board position pays $35 a meeting.

Sanford had expressed interest in the president's opening at the College of Charleston. The school has begun to take applications and will choose a successor to the retiring George Benson early next year.
