Swansea Town Council races end with one newcomer, one familiar face elected

Swansea, SC 11/03/2021 (Paul Kirby) – The races for the two open Swansea Town Council seats ended with one incumbent being returned to office and one newcomer being elected. The seats for Districts One and Two were in play in Tuesday’s election.

District One’s race pitted long-term Councilmember Linda Butler against newcomer Thomas Dease, Jr. After all the votes were counted, Butler easily retained her seat with nearly 70% of the votes cast. 39 of the voters in that district marked their ballots for her. Dease received just 16 votes or approximately 28.5% of the total cast. That means that Butler will serve another 4-year term on the beleaguered town’s council.

In the race for District Two, Suzanne Clark Hackett ran against Jerome Williams. When the votes were tallied in that race, Williams came out victorious with 41 votes which was a little over 77% of the total votes cast. Hackett could garner just 12 votes for a total of about 23%.

The District Two race were also for a 4-year term. The swearing in ceremony will take place soon per local ordinances.
