Horry Council says Ho, Ho, No to Christmas bonuses for elected officials

jrodriguez@thesunnews.comDecember 12, 2013 

— Horry County Council split their vote on whether to give elected officials, excluding themselves, holiday bonuses, which effectively nixed the idea.

Council voted in November to give county employees a $250 holiday gift, but did not include elected officials like the auditor, treasurer and sheriff.

“When they run for office, they understand the terms and whatever else and in as much as they’re elected, I’m going to vote no on this issue,” said Councilman Carl Schwartzkopf.

Schwartzkopf joined Councilmen Marion Foxworth, Bob Grabowski, Paul Prince, Al Allen and Paul Price in voting down the measure.
