LANDRUM – A special election will be held on May 30 to fill Councilman Daniel Prince’s seat on the Landrum City Council. Early voting began on May 15.

Former Councilman Prince submitted his resignation on March 3, 2023. Prince is moving into a new home in Landrum that is currently outside Landrum city limits. South Carolina requires that a special election be held to fill his seat on the council.

“Daniel has been an important member of the City Council and contributed to the council in many ways during his tenure,” Landrum Mayor Bob Briggs said. “On behalf of the City Council, I want to thank Daniel for his service on the council and know he will continue to serve the Landrum community in other ways in the future.”
