Ted Stambolitis

Mayor Steve MacDougall has accepted the resignation of Councilman Ted Stambolitis effective Wednesday (Feb. 28.)

Stambolitis no longer meets the eligibility requirements of a qualified elector set forth in the Town of Lexington Ordinance 34.37. Stambolitis is a local businessman who has served on Town Council since 2004.

According to town ordinance, a qualified elector “must be a resident of the municipality” and “must be registered by the County Registration and Elections Commission and possess a valid voter registration certificate issued by the Commission at least 30 days prior to the election.”

A special election will take place to fill the seat. Full details will be announced once coordinated with the Lexington County Registration and Elections Office.
