      2011 Atlantic Beach election appealed again

      ATLANTIC BEACH -Atlantic Beach Councilwoman Windy Price has filed another appeal of the May 22 election. This time it is with the South Carolina Supreme Court.

      Windy Price filed her appeal with the Supreme Court on November 27th.

      Price protested days after the election in front of the Horry County Election Commission. When her protest was denied, she then appealed to the Court of Common Pleas.

      The May 22, 2012 election was held after the November 2011 election results were thrown out by the Atlantic Beach Election Commission.

      The clerk of court for the state Supreme Court said they also have an appeal of that election on file for Mayor Retha Pierce, but they are waiting on transcripts from a court reporter.
