After winning her seat on the Simpsonville City Commission by one vote, Dottie Shelburne has decided to step down from office.
Shelburne beat out fellow incumbent Cary Vowels 339 to 340 votes this past November in an election that was tainted when non-city residents voted in the race.
Shelburne said she has informed the commission of her decision to step down.
But her resignation has some string attached.
She told the commission that she would only step down if they promised her that they would appoint Cary Vowels to her seat.
