Horry County Council District 10 candidate Devon Blackwell secured the support of the Coastal Carolinas Association of Realtors last week.
Each election cycle, CCAR interviews candidates and announces support with a letter and campaign contribution for various local and state candidates.
CCAR chose Devon Blackwell as the candidate it is supporting in the Horry County Council District 10 Republican Primary.
“I am very proud of being chosen by the association of realtors,” Blackwell said.
Blackwell said District 10 is the largest council district in area in Horry County. He understands the needs of different neighborhoods within the district will differ. He said he will be responsive to all his constituents to meet their needs.
Blackwell supports infrastructure improvements, especially roads and drainage, throughout District 10. He also said he supports reviewing the many regulations on small business to make sure the county is not being hindering the opportunities for small businesses to be successful.
Blackwell said his approach to spending public money will be guided by the question “would you spend your own money for this?”
Blackwell’s opponent in the primary is Danny Hardee, a long time businessman in the Mt. Vernon community in District 10, but who appears to have his primary residence at the Floral Lake subdivision in Surfside Beach, which is not in District 10.
Hardee’s campaign touts his service on the now defunct Horry County Airport Advisory Board and Horry County Solid Waste Authority Board.
