Appearing as tired and worn as the city he now leaves behind, John Rhodes fell short of his bid for a 4th term as mayor of Myrtle Beach.
Rhodes, who has, at times been described as a cross between a “used car salesman” and a “school-yard bully” accepted his fate with some resignation.
His Fall campaign was highlighted by a false, last minute attack against candidate Bethune. He also attacked our news organization ongoing throughout his campaign.

For reasons unknown, Rhodes also lashed out at a tourist who Facebook Live-streamed a shooting last June.

His campaign was peppered with attacks against county residents, city residents, his opponents, our news team, and tourists alike.
The City of Myrtle Beach can now move into new opportunities just ahead.
