Hartsville City Council member Tre Gammage has resigned his seat, setting up a second special election for Hartsville-area voters. Gammage told the News & Press that his resignation already has taken effect and that council’s Feb. 16 work session, conducted online, would be his last council meeting. “It was a tough decision, but it was a family decision,” Gammage said. He is moving to Columbia to make things easier for his family; he said his wife works across the state, and a Columbia move will simplify his family life. The first-term council member said he hoped to finish out his term, but “my family took precedence.” He said he is proud that the voters allowed him to represent District 1 on council. Gammage’s resignation now sets in motion another special election to be decided by Hartsville-area voters. A special election also is set to fill the seat vacated by Darlington County Council member Lewis Brown, who represented the Hartsville area on council. — Bobby Bryant
