For the record, my family moved to Conway, S.C. in 1767 from Surrey, Virginia. There was no Surfside Beach when we arrived. We first came to Surrey, VA. from England in 1633. My father owned a home in Surfside Beach during the entire decade of the 1970s. I spent summers playing in the surf in Surfside Beach long before Ms. Cribb was born. – David Hucks
Former candidate for Surfside Beach Town Council, Jenn Cribb, took to social media today. Cribb is a real estate agent with Surfside Realty.
Cribb failed to make the runoff in Tuesday night’s general election. Four candidates are in a runoff including: Paul Holder, Michael Drake, Cindy Keating and Kathryn Martin. The runoff will be held on Tuesday, November 19th.
Posted Cribb, “Recently there has been obvious interference by outside influencers in Surfside Beach local elections.“
While Ms. Cribb does not name those influences, candidate for Mayor, Julie Samples has singled our news group out.

MS. CRIBB’S NEGATIVE POST
Cribb goes on to add, “The election on November 19th could very quickly make Surfside Beach vulnerable to annexation by a larger municipality.“
The only larger municipality near Surfside Beach happens to be Myrtle Beach. I would remind Ms. Cribb to please note our recent and ongoing articles on the City of Myrtle Beach. Example, our opinion piece of today: https://myrtlebeachsc.com/can-we-please-just-wall-off-the-city-of-myrtle-beach/
NEGATIVE, FALSE ACCUSATIONS
At MyrtleBeachSC news, we have been covering Surfside Beach (along with Horry County Council, NMB, and Myrtle Beach) for more than 14 years.
We are professionals.
Both Ms. Cribb and Mayoral Candidate Samples have made the same such global claims of negative, false mis-information coming from our news articles. We challenge either to point to one false news article published.
As to negative news, we would ask Ms. Cribb to also note our article of today: https://myrtlebeachsc.com/the-positive-side-of-surfside-beach-politics/
MOTIVES FOR POSTS LIKE THIS FROM CRIBB
As we explained in our article of today:
In a runoff, collusive candidates encourage surrogates to create as much chaos and disillusion in the election process as possible.
The hopes of collusive campaigns are to discourage voters from going back to the polls in a runoff. This way, only the collusive candidate’s voters are sure to vote. [FYI – collusive voters always vote]
As we predicted, the negative surrogate posts began today.
For the record, we are resident focused news. We write and work for the residents of Horry County.
