Former Folly council woman runs for Charleston seat

CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Former Folly Beach City Council member Laura Beck is now running for Charleston City Council.

Earlier this month, Beck resigned from her seat on Folly's City Council because she was moving back to Charleston.

The Charleston native and mother of two says she wants to do her place to keep the city special.

Beck says she will officially file on Wednesday for the District 11 seat that's being vacated by Tim Mallard. District 11 includes parts of West Ashley and James Island.
