Voters’ day: Runoff likely in Loris Mayoral race, Grayam’s out

Voting is over
    A run-off between Michael Suggs and Henry Nichols appears likely following one of the most active municipal elections in Loris in recent memory Tuesday.
    Incumbent city council member Joan Gause appeared to keep her seat, while fellow council member Thessalonia Graham lost in the unofficial counting. City Fire Chief Jerry Hardee and firefighter Michael Dozier appeared to claim the other two seats, with challengers Kimberly Rudelitch and Jan Vescovi falling short in their bids for council.
    Dr. George Protz finished in the back of the pack of three men seeking the mayor’s post as David Stoudenmire did not seek re-election this year.
    Look for the complete story in Wednesday’s Tabor-Loris Tribune in print and online.
