WMBF News speaks to Horry Co. Council candidate Oliver 'Bubba' Owens

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.  Oliver “Bubba” Owens is one of four running as a Republican.

Oliver “Bubba” Owens Jr. is running for the District 3 seat on Horry County council as a Republican.

Owens says he was born and raised in the Myrtle Beach area, which he says makes him most suitable for the seat.

He explains he’s seen the issues the county faces, and believes a program different from local neighborhood watch groups could potentially help deter crime in the Myrtle Beach area.

“Basically I'm just born and raised here, I want to do this for the people, and my objective is to do this for the people of Horry County, and District 3 where I grew up my whole life, and I see all of the stuff that's going on now, and I'm just trying to make that voice so we can correct some of it,” Owens said.
