Pinewood elects Jack Spann as new mayor

It appears the Town of Pinewood knows who its next mayor will be.

Jack Spann received 68 votes in Tuesday's special election for mayor, which was held after longtime mayor Sarah Mathis resigned earlier this summer. With only three write-in votes for other people and Spann being the only candidate to file for the election, he will presumably be named mayor.

Pat Jefferson, director of Sumter County Voter Registration and Elections, said the results will be certified on Friday morning.

Spann will have to resign from his Pinewood Town Council post to assume the mayoral seat, his first time doing so, and a special election will next be held to fill his vacated council seat.

Pinewood has 538 residents, according to the Municipal Association of South Carolina.
