DILLON, SC (WMBF) – The residents of Dillon have a new mayor.

Corey Jackson won Tuesday’s runoff election with 652 votes. He beat Tally McColl by 32 votes.

Voters went to the polls a couple of weeks ago, but because Jackson and McColl didn’t get 51% of the vote, a runoff took place.

Jackson takes over for current Mayor Todd Davis who has been the leader of Dillon for more than 15 years. Davis decided to not seek re-election.
