WMBF News speaks to Horry Co. Council candidate Jimmy Washington

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.  Jimmy Washington is the only Democrat running for the seat.

Jimmy Washington is the only Democrat running for the District 3 seat on Horry County Council but this isn’t his first time representing District 3.

Washington also served on the Horry County School Board. Washington believes his time on the school board has helped him realize the issues the county faces as a whole.

Washington is originally from Myrtle Beach, he says he’s known in the community, he works in the community and feels he would be the best voice for the people.

Washington believes knowing what it takes from both sides, a community outlook, and as a representative, will help him succeed on Horry Council. 

“Well, I'm in the community. I'm known in the community. I've lived here all my life, and I work in the community, and I also served District 3 on the Horry County School board and I got to know a lot of folks and you got to be able to get to know both sides,” Washington said.
