A new era will begins in the Town of Summerville this week as residents elect a new mayor for the first time in 40 years.
The candidates include Bill Collins, a former publisher for the Summerville Journal Scene newspaper; Bill Lomax, an ear nose and throat doctor; and real estate broker Dickie Miler.
Ten-term Mayor Berlin Myers is stepping down after celebrating his 94th birthday in March.
He plans to keep working as president of his lumber company.
Polls open Tuesday at 7 a.m.
