ATLANTIC BEACH — Atlantic Beach has again elected a town councilman to take over as mayor.
Unofficial results from Tuesday’s voting show that Councilman Jake Evans has been elected mayor.
The voting Tuesday came after the results of the Nov. 1 election where challenged and declared invalid by the town’s election commission. Tuesday’s voting was run by officials from Horry County and the state elections commission.
Gov. Nikki Haley had set the new election date after the town election commission was unable to choose a date.
Evans defeated incumbent Mayor Retha Pierce and Windy Price to win the town’s top post.
The results are to be certified Tuesday morning.
