BEAUFORT, S.C.  (Aug. 2, 2023) –  City of Beaufort Mayor Stephen Murray was elected president of the Association of South Carolina Mayors for 2023-2024 at the organization’s meeting on July 28.

Mayor Murray was also elected as an at-large delegate to the Board of Directors of the Municipal Association of South Carolina (MASC). The MASC represents and serves the state's 271 incorporated municipalities, and offers services, programs and tools to help in effective governance.

"I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve the other 270 mayors across the state as president of the Mayors Association, and as a board member for MASC,” Mayor Murray said. “I look forward to supporting mayors across South Carolina while promoting policy at the state level that benefits the millions of South Carolinians that call towns and cities their home."

The new officers of the SC mayors’ association:

Mayor Stephen Murray, Beaufort 

Vice President 
Mayor Nathan Senn, Laurens

Immediate Past President 
Mayor Alfred Mae Drakeford, Camden
