Potts Camp alderman race goes to runoff election
A runoff election was set for Tuesday of this week in the special election to fill a vacant alderman seat in Potts Camp.
Results from the April 17 vote, according to town clerk Marie Tate, were Dollean Porter, 58 votes; James “Johnny” Westmoreland, 45; Kevin Harris, 25; and J.C. Pruitt Jr., 12.
“No one received 51 percent of the vote, so we will have a runoff between the top two candidates,” Tate said.
Porter and Westmoreland met in the April 24 runoff race. Results will be included in next week’s South Reporter.
Tate said she was pleased with the turnout on April 17.
“We had 140 people vote, and that’s a good turnout for a special election like this,” she said.
Alderman Al Beard died February 24, leaving the vacancy on the board. The term will run through June 2009.
