DARLINGTON, S.C. -- Republican Lewis Brown defeated incumbent Robbin Brock for the Darlington County Council District 7 seat. Lewis won with 72.29 percent of the vote.
“I’m looking forward to the transition and working with members of county council to put a plan in place for Darlington County,” Brown said.
Brock served Darlington County with a passion and interest, and Brown said he wants to thank him for his term as a council member.
“Secondly, I’d like to thank my support team, starting first with my family, all those friends and supporters,” Brown said.
Joyce Wingate Thomas defeated incumbent Wilhelmina P. Johnson on Tuesday for the District 3 seat. She received 615 votes, or 51.99 percent.
Thomas said she previously served on the Darlington County Board of Education for eight years, was a member of the emergency medical commission for eight years and the county commission for four years.
After she is sworn into office in January, Thomas said, she would like to see the council become a cohesive team and work together to get things accomplished.
“I think one of the most important things we need to do is to print a county directory so our constituents and people will know who’s in the chain of command, what facilities we have, what goes on,” Thomas said.
She said a directory of county personnel is important so residents can keep in touch.
In the race for Darlington County auditor, Margaret Ross Rogers defeated Brenton Dana with 51.50 percent of the vote.
