Lisa Sulka is the first female mayor of Bluffton, currently serving her third term. But it isn’t a position she’d ever thought she’d be in.
Sulka grew up in Prosperity, on the northern side of Lake Murray. Growing up in that area, where several towns connected into one larger community, Sulka’s furthest relative lived 90 minutes away in Clemson. Surrounded by family, she and her cousins would go outside in the morning and not come in until supper.
