GEORGETOWN- The Georgetown County Republican Party announced today that candidates for Georgetown City Council can file with the GOP starting at noon on March 7th.

Three city council seats, currently held by Democrats Rudolph Bradley, Clarence Smalls, and Peggy Wayne, are up for election this year.

"Clearly a lot of voters are frustrated with the free-spending ways of the Democrat Party-controlled city council. Over the last several years fees, utility rates, and taxes have skyrocketed to support the Democrat's spending habits," Georgetown County Republican Party Chairman Tom Swatzel said.

"I expect these incumbents will attract significant election opposition," he said.

The filing period will end at noon on March 25th.

City residents should call the county GOP at (843) 527-3209 for information and filing forms.

All council seats have four year terms.

Party primary elections, if needed, would be held on June 7th. The general election is November 8th.
