South Carolina State Representative Abruptly Resigns
Rep. Mandy Kimmons has resigned from the South Carolina House of Representatives.
In a letter to House Speaker James Lucas and posted on social media, Kimmons cited a desire to focus on her legal career and service to her local community as reasons for the sudden resignation.
A special election will be scheduled to fill the 97th District seat for the remainder of the term.
This, along with the recent passing of Sen. Hugh Leatherman and the suspension of Rep. Rick Martin due to a recent criminal indictment, means the South Carolina Legislature will convene the 2022 legislative session on January 11, 2022 with three empty seats.
