After serving over 15 years on the IRMO Town Council, I decided to run for Mayor in 2019. When I won, I was concerned about who would fill that seat that I was vacating.
Fortunately for the Town of Irmo, Bill Danielson and Barb Waldman were the top vote-getters for that seat. Bill Danielson prevailed in that special election by 5 votes over Barb Waldman. That result showed me that we had TWO exemplary council candidates running for the ONE seat. We now have a regular Town Council election and there are TWO seats open.
Dr. Barb Waldman’s knowledge of the Lexington/Richland School District Five, education systems and quality of life in IRMO for almost 30 years has shown me that she would make a great addition to our Council. With these qualities, she will be a valuable resource to continue growing our Town in a positive manner.
I endorse Dr. Barb Waldman for the IRMO Town Council election and look forward to serving with her for many years to come.
Barry A. Walker, Sr.
Town of Irmo
