With this year’s elections for the city of Myrtle Beach rapidly approaching, there have been plenty of individuals who have tossed their hats into the ring. Five candidates have filed for the mayor’s seat and nine candidates have entered the race for three city council spots. All seats on the city council are at-large and city elections are non-partisan.
A Surfside Beach Volunteer firefighter received a life changing gift today. The Surfside Beach Fire Department raised thousands of dollars to get Roy Luther a new electronic chair. “My heart is full right now,” said Luther. The 32-year-old does everything he can around the Surfside Beach Fire Department. The 7-year volunteer has cerebral palsy, but he’s never let it slow him down.
