The Dillon Herald | Dillon Native Named Vice-Chair Of Richland County Council

On Tuesday, Richland County Council officially elected new leadership for 2024.

Derrek Pugh, Dillon native and a graduate of Dillon High School’s Class of 1998, has been named Vice-Chair of Richland County Council in Columbia, SC.

In this capacity Derrek will help steward the governance of the elected body and serve as a key representative within the community.

Pugh is entering the fourth year of his first term on Council. The Councilman won his seat in the 2020 election.

Richland County Council consists of 11 members who are elected from single-member districts for four-year terms beginning Jan. 1 of the year after their election. In January, Council elects a chair and vice chair who each serve one-year terms.

“I’m elated and grateful to serve as the next vice chairman of Richland County Council,” Pugh said. “I understand the importance of representing our collective interests and ensuring this body continues to thrive both internally and externally for the citizens of Richland County. I want to thank my colleagues for their trust and support.”
