Two Town Council seats are open in Briarcliffe Acres for this November’s election.
Incumbents Nancy Edelman and Richard Dwyer are not running for reelection.
Running are Rebecca Hinds, Kate Phillips and Paul Rotondo.
Hinds and Rotondo could not be reached for comment.
Phillips said Edelman encouraged her to run. She said she shares Edelman’s environmentalism and thinks “the area can grow and be prosperous” if the environment is a priority.
She’s lived in the area since 1994 and is currently on the board of directors at Care Team, which works to educated the community about preventing HIV. She previously was on the board of directors for the Horry County Humane Society and the American Society of Media Photographers.
