District 3: Washington Seeks Re-Election in Myrtle Beach and Carolina Forest
Jimmy Washington is asking Carolina Forest and Myrtle Beach voters to keep him on Horry County Council. His final campaign rally will be held this Saturday, Nov. 5, 5:00-7:00 pm, at the field outside Mt. Olive AME Church, 1108 Carver Street in Myrtle Beach. Free food and beverages will be served.
Washington won the seat in a special election last December, and has been working tirelessly on public safety issues since he was sworn into office. If re-elected, Washington pledges to continue his focus on hiring additional public safety personnel to cover the entire county, as well as finding ways to increase current employee retention rates. He also understands that Carolina Forest residents need to see completion of International Drive as soon as possible, and he strongly supports proposed Ride III projects across Horry County, especially the critical widening of Hwy. 501 and extending Hwy. 31 to the North Carolina state line.
Washington has been juggling his re-election campaign with his fulltime position as a manager at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville Restaurant, the demanding responsibilities of a sitting Councilmember for the District, and perhaps the best job of all — proud “Father of the Bride” at the wedding of his daughter Andrena in September.
District 3 precincts include: Carolina Bay; Carolina Forest 1; Coastal Lane 1 & 2; Emerald Forest 1 & 2; Jet Port 1 & 2; Myrtlewood 1; Sea Oats 1 & 2.
