Mande Wilkes considers District 107 seat

On Wednesday, Fitsnews of Columbia informed local residents about Alan Clemmons’ pursuit of a new job as Myrtle Beach City Attorney. Current City Attorney Tom Ellenburg has announced he will retire this June.

Clemmons represents District 107 which runs from Market Common to Briarcliffe Acres along the S.C. coast. If hired, Clemmons would be required to resign his state post at the end of this session in May.

Fitsnews also leaked a statement that most in Myrtle Beach media were already aware. Brenda Bethune was encouraging city council to hire Clemmons while requesting that Clemmons also appoint her husband on the S.C. Real Estate Board.

While it is unclear if Clemmons will now get the job, highly regarded local business woman Mande Wilkes announced today she would consider the seat.

Wilkes posted the following on Facebook. “With the news that Rep. Alan Clemmons may be vacating his state house seat for greener pastures, some have reached out to me about running. This is the part where I’m supposed to say I’m humbled, I think?

Well, I am. Humbled. And interested. We’re in the early stages, just exploring. As ever my babies are my joy and my job, so my choices will center around them. Lots of y’all have been with me through my many phases, and I <3 you.”



Several other locals have also informed MyrtleBeachSC news, they might consider running, should Clemmons become city attorney.
