For the first time in more than 20 years, Kershaw County Council will have a new chairman. Republican Gene Wise, general manager of the Target Distribution Center in Lugoff, won council’s top spot convincingly Tuesday, defeating Democratic challenger Bobby Gary by a margin of 29 percent. “I’m just pleased there were voters out there who supported the things I stood for,” Wise said Wednesday.
