Incumbents Tonia Aike-Taylor and Johna Bilton, along with newcomer Charlotte Cruppenick, won seats on Moncks Corner Town Council Monday night. Aiken-Taylor garnered the highest vote total with 233 votes, followed closely by Cruppenick with 230 and Bilton with 206 to earn the vacant council seats.
Political newcomer Jennifer Schlette finished fourth in the balloting. Results are unofficial until certified by the office of Berkeley County Elections.
A total of 824 votes were cast out of 4,635 registered voters in Moncks Corner, according to Adam Hammons, Director of Berkeley County Elections and Registration.
Hammons replaced Wanda Farley as BCER Director in June after Farley retired after 28 years on the job.
“Voter turnout was much higher than we anticipated this election,” Hammons said.
