Allgood, who is 44 and vice president of marketing at Your Marketing Co., said ahead of the general election he planned to focus on implementing modern planning and zoning strategies and a long-term land-use plan for the city to foster responsible development. The lifelong Mauldin resident said emphasizing a sense of place and unique identity within the city as it continues to grow would be among his top priorities. 

Black, 75, has been on council since 1989 with the exception of a single four-year term.
