Geneik Brewster will join the Gray Court Town Council where her late father served for more than three decades.
Brewster won a special election Tuesday for an at-large seat on council, running unopposed and receiving all 19 of the votes that were cast. Turnout for the special election was 3.97%.
The special election was necessitated following the March 4 resignation of former Councilwoman Shaterica Neal. Neal resigned citing conflicts on council with Mayor Stellartean Jones. Brewster will fill Neal’s unexpired term, which ends in 2023.
Brewster is the daughter of former Councilman Adolphus Brewster, who spent 32 years on council until his death on March 7, 2020.
Geneik Brewster is expected to be installed on council at its next regular meeting on Monday, June 21.
