Wood, Lutz Win Bluffton Town Council Runoff

blufftontowncBluffton Town Council will welcome two newcomers to Town Hall, as Dan Wood and Harry Lutz won seats in the Nov. 17 three-way candidate runoff.

Lutz overcame a 173-vote deficit from the Nov. 3 general election to oust incumbent Ted Huffman.

Wood, the leading vote getter from the first vote, led the way again with 723 votes (39.5 percent). Lutz garnered 623 votes (34.1) and Huffman won just 483 votes (26.4).

Lutz campaigned hard in his district and Hampton Hall neighborhood over the two weeks between votes to win the second seat.

This is the third straight Bluffton Town Council election in which challengers unseated incumbents
