Marlboro County Council elected officers for the new year during its first meeting of 2019.
Dr. Carolyn Prince will continue to serve as the chairman of the council. The council voted unanimously for a second consecutive one-year term for Prince as the group’s leader.
"I want to thank everyone for their confidence in me," said Prince, who represents District 5 on the council.
The council also voted for Jason Steen, who represents District 1, to another term as the vice-chairman. Prior to serving as vice-chair, Steen had been the chairman for two years.
Prior to the election of officers, councilmen Anthony Woods (District 8), Corrie Plato (District 4), Steen and Steve Blackmon (District 7) took the oath of office. All four were re-elected for another term in November.
