Three Carolina Beach officials resigned last night during a regularly-scheduled town council meeting. WHQR’s Sara Wood reports the resignations started with Town Manager Tim Owens.
Immediately following Owens’s resignation, Councilmember Lonnie Lashley resigned. Then Mayor Ray Rothrock stepped down. Rothrock says even if he stayed on council, his one vote would be futile with the three remaining members.
With municipal elections less than a week away, WHQR News is talking to mayoral candidates, including former Carolina Beach Mayor Ray Rothrock, who is returning to the ballot, as well as current council members Dan Wilcox and Pat Efird.
