Paul Price Endorses Reese Boyd for Horry District 5

Retiring Horry County Council District 5 member Paul Price issued the following press release today endorsing Reese Boyd to succeed him.

Price said after careful consideration, he believed Boyd was the best choice to represent the citizens of District 5 in the upcoming term.

The endorsement comes at a key time with the Republican Primary being held on Tuesday June 10th to decide among four candidates who will replace Price on the November ticket.

What’s Happening in Horry County Council District 5?

A 23 year old first time candidate with deep pockets mixed with a veteran, but questionable, political consultant is creating quite a buzz in Horry County Council District 5.

At least that is the talk on the street about the candidacy of young Tyler Servant, a political novice who has outraised every other candidate in the county running for local or state office including some multi-term incumbents.

Much of the fundraising success can probably be credited to the long term business relationships of Servant’s father and grandfather in the southern Horry County real estate market.
Some also has to do with the Dunes Club card room crowd, especially the group that contributes generously to Tom Rice, backing the Servant candidacy for some reason.

John Weaver Running for County Council?

Several reliable sources have recently mentioned that former county administrator and county attorney John Weaver is considering a run against incumbent Paul Price for the Horry County District 5 seat.

Weaver left his final position as county administrator after a majority of council refused to extend his contract and encouraged him to leave five months before the expiration date of the contract.

It would be extremely interesting to see Weaver enter the political spotlight considering some of his past positions on important county issues.
