Callie Mack is from Louisville, Kentucky but every year his family visits Myrtle Beach.

His family said that since he was three years old he would walk around the beach and make sure people were OK. That’s when his family started calling him the mayor of Myrtle Beach. They even made a shirt that said “Mayor.”

The family reached out to Mayor Brenda Bethune to tell her about Callie and also show her the shirt. It led to Bethune reaching back out and connecting with the family almost every time they visit Myrtle Beach.

Because of Callie’s devotion to Myrtle Beach, he was able to gavel in Tuesday’s city council meeting and said, “I call this meeting to order,” living out his mayoral dreams for a moment.
