Paul Price Endorses Reese Boyd in Horry County District 5 Republican Primary
“I would first like to take this opportunity to thank all the voters of District 5 who so graciously allowed me to represent them on Horry County Council for the last four years. It was a privilege and an honor to do so.
“Judy and I have made many great friends over the last four years and we hope we were able to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of the citizens in District 5.
“After careful consideration of the four candidates running for the Republican nomination for Horry County Council District 5, I am announcing my support and endorsement of Reese Boyd.
“Reese has a BA in economics from Davidson College and is an Attorney. I believe Reese will be an asset for the County Council because balancing the County budget is one of the most important responsibilities Council has.
“Reese has the resident’s best interest at heart and I believe Reese has the background and strong conservative principles to best look after the interests of the citizens of District 5, who I have served for the last four years. I believe he will continue to work hard to improve the quality of life in the District for all residents.
“As a young man, he worked as a staff attorney for Gov. Carroll Campbell, gaining day to day experience in the inner workings of government at the state and local level.
“His current law practice includes business representation as well as aviation law. If elected, I believe Reese will be a key asset on council oversight of airport operations.
“Obviously, it will be your decision on whom to vote for in the June 10th Republican Primary. But, I believe you will not find a candidate more prepared to represent the citizens of District 5 or to step into the job of County Council representative.”
