Lexington restaurateur announces he will run for a seat on the Lexington Town Council in November

Lexington, SC 08/23/2023 (Paul Kirby) – Town of Lexington restaurant owner Will Allen has announced he has launched a campaign to run for a seat on the Lexington Town Council in the upcoming November 7 election. Allen says that he is running, “with the support of engaged community members.”

“Now is the time,” Allen said in a prepared release. “Myself, my family and concerned citizens throughout Lexington have been involved and fought against some troubling times over the past few years. After a lot of prayer, we have decided that it is time to get involved directly by serving on town council.”

Allen is a born-again Christian. Over the past few years, he has hosts twice-weekly Bible readings. He said that his faith is the driving force behind his decision to run. “I’m called to glorify God and I’ve been led to public service. Those who do not desire positions of influence are most needed to fill them,” he said.

Allen, a stalwart constitutional conservative, has been involved with his family in opposing harsh COVID-19 restrictions as well as the recent 93-acre Smallwood Cove project on Lake Murray. During his campaign and if elected, his time of service, he said that he is putting freedom in the forefront of his agenda. “The encroachments on freedom at all levels during COVID-19 were an affront to the values of our country and community. We cannot let that happen again and we’ve got to put policies in place, so it doesn’t happen again.”

Allen added that, “preserving community character, supporting small businesses, tax reform, fiscal restraint and much more must be accomplished. We’ve got a lot to do and I’m ready for us to work together to get those things done,” he concluded.

Allen and his family own and operate the popular spot Momma Rabbit’s Nibbles and Sips on Sunset Boulevard in Lexington.

The Town of Lexington holds elections on November 7 with early voting two weeks prior. The election for mayor and three at-large council seats will be on the ballot for all registered voters within the town. Will Allen’s campaign is online at
