Ocean Drive elected former planning commissioner and insurance company owner Bubba Collins to North Myrtle Beach City Council last night.
Collins was opposed by Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce preferred candidate Norfleet Jones.
Jones is a business owner who is best known for his time serving on Horry County’s Solid Waste Authority board.
The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce is highly skilled at getting the candidates of their choice elected in the City of Myrtle Beach.
During a recent, previous era, the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce dominated Horry County politics entirely.
Recent moves by the chamber caused residents outside of the Myrtle Beach City limits to take a closer look at candidates and issues supported by the non profit organization.
