Did you know there are 6 elected members serving on the Fort Mill Town council? Fort Mill is divided into 4 wards with an elected member to serve those areas plus 2 more elected officials to represent “at large” seats. To qualify and campaign for a ward seat, you must live within the ward, however, everyone can vote for the candidate running for a seat on town council….which means YOUR vote counts!!! The council members serve staggered 4 year terms and this year the seat serving ward 3 is between 2 candidates: incumbent- Larry Huntley and challenger – Julia Beilsmith. So…what is the difference between these candidates?

Larry Huntley has served on town council since 2007, he is rooted in our community and embraces growth as it is a “good problem to have”. He is a husband, father, and grandfather who invests his time and stories (packed full of wisdom) with them daily. Larry Huntley is running on his voting record.

Julia Beilsmith is a newcomer to Fort Mill and brings with her the experience of many years of public service. She is an engineer who works in Huntersville,NC, a wife and mother who believes her experience can help effectively manage the growth in Fort Mill.

Both candidates are concerned about traffic, water and sewer lines, and the right balance between residential/commercial development.

Both candidates are likable, engaging, and open to sharing their time to connect with citizens.

You can reach Larry Huntley by cell 803) 417-0851
Julia Beilsmith: or (813) 956-3436

Today’s edition of “Close up: Fort Mill/ Tega Cay” was packed full of nutritious ideas for living a healthier life. My guest, Carol Green is a nutritional therapy practitioner with an office in the Clebourne building (suite 120) right here in Fort Mill. We covered a lot of information during our 30 minutes on air interview and still didn’t get to everything!! Carol believes that most health conditions can be avoided, diminished or eliminated through good nutrition. I do too, however, defining and achieving “good” nutrition is a personal journey for each of us. It’s nice to know that we have Carol Green, NTP here local to help us achieve personal wellness and….she offers a complimentary 30 minute consultation!! Speaking of local… Just so you know- The Peach Stand offers a variety of gluten free products as well as grass fed/free range meats. For more information, recipes or to contact Carol visit
