Filing for Horry County political seats closes

  • Thursday, April 3, 2014

An open seat on the Horry County Council has attracted four candidates, all Republicans.

If none withdraws, electors will choose from three Murrells Inlet residents — Reese Boyd III, a lawyer; Chuck Ottwell, a retiree; and Clif Smith, a businessman — and Surfside Beach political newcomer J. Tyler Servant.

Paul Price has opted not to seek re-election after one four-year council term.

The District 5 council seat, which includes the unincorporated part of the county from the Georgetown County line and the town of Surfside Beach, is the only one in the area that is contested based on candidate filing, which ended Sunday.

State Reps. Nelson Hardwick and Stephen Goldfinch are unopposed on the Republican ballot, as is council Chairman Mark Lazarus.
