NORTH AUGUSTA -- Local leadership is poised to look extremely familiar in the months ahead, as North Augusta City Council members Pat Carpenter, Arthur Shealy and Jason Whinghter were all reelected in Tuesday's voting, and challenger Bill Harville came up short. About five percent of potential voters participated, and the final data, announced by local Republican Chairman David Toole at 7:41 p.m., had Carpenter with 592 votes; Shealy, 481; Whinghter, 405; and Harville, 257. No Democrats have filed to run for office, so the trio of Republican incumbents apparently will face no further opposition. Along the same lines, North Augusta Mayor Lark Jones - also a Republican - has not announced opposition and apparently faces a clear path to another term. Gaffes in the day's proceedings included a report of Harville's name having been misspelled (as "Harvell") on the ballots. "We think that we got about 600 people turned out to vote," Toole said, noting that the total potential pool of GOP voters was about 12,000. "Everything ran smooth. Everybody loved meeting at one place, voting at one place," Toole said. "It's a lot of fun." He said the 17 precincts were broken down to nine polling places. All were around the perimeter of a gymnasium at the recreation center, with the polls open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Whinghter and Carpenter were both on hand at Riverview Park Activities Center when the results were announced. Whinghter, when asked about his priorities for his second term, remarked, "I think we (should) just keep up what we're doing right now - keep a conservative mindset, with quality growth, and (do) what the Councils before me have been planning for." Carpenter, approaching her fifth term, offered thanks to "all the voters that supported me." She added, "Right now ... I'm just going to continue, as I've always done, to serve this city with an open and honest heart, and try to listen to all the citizens and do what we feel's best for everybody in this city." Other Council members, in the midst of terms to run for another two years, are Republicans Ken McDowell, Carolyn Baggott and Jimmy Adams.
