Lexington Town Council makeup remains unchanged as incumbents prevail

Lexington, SC 11/03/2021 (Paul Kirby) – In Tuesday’s race for Lexington Town Council, three incumbents were being challenged by political newcomer Lachin Hatemi. The three incumbent councilmembers were Steve Baker, Ron Williams, and Todd Carnes.

A total of 2,512 votes were cast in the race. Because the Town of Lexington uses an at large voting style, the top three vote getters win. As the ballots were tabulated Tuesday, it became apparent that Hatemi would not take one of those three spots.

Long serving Councilman Ron Williams claimed the most votes with 789 ballots cast in his favor. He was followed closely by Todd Carnes who garnered 727 votes with Baker gathering 674 votes in his favor. Hatemi was only able to gather 282 votes of the total ballots cast.

During the years that the three incumbents have served, Lexington has been growing and changing constantly. Although traffic projects have caused inconveniences while they were under construction, the end result have seemed to justify the disruption in the end.

The town’s quality of life projects have also been extremely popular. Just yesterday, they held the official ribbon cutting for the recently remodeled Gibson Pond Park. As the voters showed with their ballots, they must be happy with the way the town is headed.
