One of our clients is now the mayor-elect of Rock Hill, SC!
In an election held on Halloween, John Gettys — partner with Morton & Gettys law firm — was elected to become the city’s first new mayor in two decades.
With 36 of 39 precincts reported, Gettys led William “Bump” Roddey with about 53 percent of the vote.
Gettys said the campaign had been a “wonderful ride.”
“I want to thank the voters of Rock Hill,” he told supporters at the law firm’s offices on Halloween night. “I cannot wait to roll up my sleeves and get after it. We worked our tails off to get here. It’s been wonderful to see so many people reaching out.”
John is a former Rock Hill City Council member, serving Ward 4 from 2002 -2010. He was endorsed by departing Mayor Doug Echols, who has held the office since 1998.
Congratulations to the new mayor!
