WMBF News speaks to Horry Co. Council candidate Bob Kelly

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – WMBF News Anchor Lisa Gresci sat down with all of the candidates running for the District 3 seat on Horry County Council. All five candidates were asked the same series of questions. Bob Kelly is running as a Republican.

District 3 represents the Myrtle Beach area of Horry County.

Bob Kelly is running is one of the five running as a Republican.

Kelly believes the shortage of public safety and first responder officials is the main issue facing Horry County right now.  Kelly has a 25-year background in law enforcement as a police officer in New Jersey.

Kelly says now is the time to hire and keep law enforcement officials in the county by making wages more comparable to the surrounding areas. 

If elected, Kelly aims to bridge the gap between the city of Myrtle Beach and the Horry County police departments.

“Well, I believe I'm truly, the only qualified candidate to run for this seat, because my law enforcement background, if you look at all the other candidates, their campaign literature, public safety is number one on their list, well no one is better to take care of that than myself,” Kelly explained.
