FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – Florence's newest city councilmember is talking about her predecessor, honor and changes to council.

Pat Gibson Hye-Moore is no stranger to government, currently serving on the board for the Florence One School District.

She won with 54 percent of the vote in a recent runoff against LaShonda NeSmith.

The two ultimately ran for Florence's District 2 after the city’s longest-sitting councilman, Ed Robinson, died unexpectedly.

On Sunday, Robinson was honored with a sign designating a section of Church Street in his honor.

“I was at the ceremony yesterday and I think that’s well deserved, plus more,” Hye-Moore said. “What the people want and what they ask for - youth activities, neighborhood revitalization and neighborhood policing - I’m going to work on that because this is the people’s seat.”
