Laurens Mayoral Candidate Randy Garrett Receives Two Endorsements

March 14, 2023

The race for mayor of Laurens will be decided next Tuesday, March 21st when voters go to the polls to choose between two candidates: incumbent Nathan Senn and lifelong Laurens resident Randy Garrett.

On Tuesday morning at a press conference in downtown Laurens, Garrett received the endorsement of Alicia Sullivan, former candidate for mayor and current city council member.

“I have spent time in conversation with Randy Garrett and feel that we are aligned in our vision for Laurens,” said Alicia Sullivan. “At this time, I am announcing my support for Randy Garret as the next mayor of Laurens. I hope that people who voted for me initially will support him as well.”

In his remarks, Randy Garrett thanked supporters for attending the press conference and for the show of support across party lines.

“The race for mayor is not about an individual person or party it’s about representing all the people of our city,” said Garrett. “I have had some great conversations with councilwoman Sullivan, I have listened to her input and am grateful for her support.”

Another endorsement for Garrett came from Luke Rankin, Laurens County Republican Party Chairman and County Councilman. “Last week, 60% of the voters voted for change,” said Rankin. “Randy Garrett has the values and experience to lead Laurens into the future. I hope the voters will get to the polls and support him for mayor of Laurens.”

Early voting for the run-off election for Laurens Mayor will start on Wednesday, March 15 at 8:30 am and close on Friday, March 17 at 5 pm.

Early voting provides the opportunity for all eligible voters to vote in person prior to the run-off election scheduled for March 21.

Voters can visit the Laurens County Voter Registration and Elections office, present their photo ID, and vote like they would on Election Day. The Laurens County Voter Registration office is located at 205 Bolt Dr. Laurens.
