Rivals in mayor’s race make their pitch
The Democratic Women’s Council of Darlington County sponsored a “Meet & Greet” event for candidates for Darlington city offices last Thursday at Bethel AME Annex, 1321 S. Main St. All candidates were given a few minutes to introduce themselves and talk about their goals. Attending were the three candidates for mayor, Mayor Gloria Hines (left), City Council member and mayor pro tem Carolyn Bruce (middle), and businessman Curtis Boyd (right). Also present were four candidates for at-large City Council seats: Incumbent council members Bryant Gardner and John Milling and challengers Ernest Boston, Howard Nettles and Winfred Herrington. The election is Nov. 5.
