Charleston Club hosts Mayoral Forum ahead of election
The Rotary Club of Charleston hosted a forum of the candidates running for the Mayor of Charleston seat in the upcoming election. The top five candidates turned out to take questions Rotarians had prepared. The questions were both long-form as well several “lightning” Yes/No rounds, addressing critical issues in Charleston such as flooding, affordable housing, transportation and infrastructure, development, education and livability. Current Mayor John Tecklenburg, a member of the Rotary Club and former past president of the club, is looking to win his second term and is up against candidates Sherri Irwin, Mike Seekings, Maurice Washington and Gary Blair.
