With 94% of the vote counted, candidates Bob Hellyer and Julie Samples are headed to a runoff for the office of Surfside Beach Mayor.
Mayoral candidate David Pellegrino could still be a key factor in the race, however. Will Pellegrino choose or not choose to endorse one of the two top candidates? These questions were asked by Surfside Beach residents, as soon as the polls closed?
Pellegrino will remain on Surfside Beach Town Council. It is highly likely he will choose not to endorse either candidate.
Pellegrino will need to work with whomever the voters decide to put into the Surfside Beach Mayor’s office.
