Yesterday, the Horry County Elections commission confirmed what Tuesday’s votes showed. Democrat Mike Chestnut garnered over 2500 votes in the Myrtle Beach city election. Chestnut gained the most votes of any candidate running.
The two conservative candidates lost dismally to all Democrats running.
“West Coast” minded candidates (John Krajc and “San Francisco” Mary Jeffcoat) are dead-locked in a November 19th runoff.
Myrtle Beach City Manager John Pedersen rightfully gloated on social media yesterday. His liberal crowd won the day.
Myrtle Beach is a liberal city. Myrtle Beach residents deserve liberally elected, representative government.
STAY IN YOUR LANE MYRTLE BEACH!
However, Horry County is a conservative county. The problem with Myrtle Beach is the heavily tax funded, liberally lead city continues to have a huge influence in how Horry County runs.
You can’t blame the City of Myrtle Beach. The town has run Horry County for over 40 years.
The news of the Hospitality Fee settlement, which we covered here
is concerning because of a $7 million dollar legal bill sent over for 8 months of negotiated work.
IN THE SETTLEMENT, HOW MUCH OF I-73 DOES THE CITY OF MYRTLE BEACH EXPECT HORRY COUNTY RESIDENTS TO PAY FOR?
What is even more troubling is news we dropped yesterday.
City of Myrtle Beach monied leaders are leveraging the good name of a tax payer funded institution to legitimize their own self created industry watchdog. The development industry is funding the Institute for Responsible Development – Coastal Carolina University think tank. This is just another heavily funded misinformation institute brought to you by the City of Myrtle Beach elites.
Will Myrtle Beach meddle in Surfside Beach elections?
On November 19th, three conservative candidates are in a tight race for election in Surfside Beach. The town of Surfside Beach may finally cast off the dark shadow of 40 years of Myrtle Beach influence. However, attempts by Myrtle Beach insiders are already at play to ensure collusive, liberal candidate Julie Samples wins the Mayor’s race in Surfside Beach.
Can we build a wall around the City of Myrtle Beach, please?
Horry County residents, don’t drink the Myrtle Beach Koolaid.
