Former West Columbia Mayor Bobby Horton will run for open West Columbia City Council seat
Former West Columbia Mayor Bobby Horton said he will run for an open West Columbia City Council seat. The Dist. 3 seat is open now after the August resignation of Councilwoman Casey Hallman. With the boundaries for the district of West Columbia City Council redrawn, Horton now lives in District 3.
“I’ve talked to a lot of people about it and I am very encouraged by the support that I have,” Horton said. Horton served as mayor of West Columbia for 12 years. His last term ended in 2019.
“It was an honor to serve as your mayor. I look forward to addressing your needs and representing the people of Dist. 3 on city council,” he said.
Horton said he has already started to organize his campaign and the response from constituents has been very positive. The election for the seat will be on Jan. 17. Filing for the seat begins in mid-November.
