DENMARK – Denmark voters have apparently re-elected the incumbents to Denmark City Council, according to Tuesday’s unofficial election results.
Incumbents Hope Long Weldon, Calvin Odom and Bervay Lee Carter will retain their three seats on Denmark Council, according to unofficial results.
Melinda Johnson, director of Bamberg County Voter Registration and Elections, stated, “These results are unofficial until Thursday morning. They will have some provisional envelopes that will be opened Thursday morning.”
Weldon received 127 votes, with Letitia Dowling receiving 126. Odom received 155 votes and Carter received 148 votes. The Rev. Dr. Chris Murray received 103 votes. There was one write-in for Bretticca Moody.
Odom was the only candidate who could be reached before press time.
Odom stated, “I would like to thank the citizens of Denmark for their continued trust in me by re-electing me as their city councilman again. I will assist in getting our new Dogwood Festival complex ready for the festival in early April.”
“Also, I plan on moving ahead with our plans to add playground equipment in all of our parks, and I plan to get Hill/Ray field ready for young people to use by late spring,” Odom added.
