Keith VanWinkle, is running as a Republican for the District 3 seat on Horry County Council.

VanWinkle ran in 2008 for the same seat, falling short 81 votes. He says although he lost, he’s kept his promise to the county and has been fighting to fix the issues the county faces.

 “I understand this county better than any of my opponents, because I've been in the trenches, I've been fighting for reform, I know what needs to take place, I know the issues and I have that relationship to work and unite county council and city council on key issues that affect our taxpayers and citizens across the board,” VanWinkle explained.

VanWinkle believes the two biggest issues facing Horry County right now are crime and the lack of public safety officers as well as the need to complete major infrastructure projects.
