@nikkihaley gives order of palmetto to bball coach but rejects it for Mary Schweers who risked her life to save Elem students from death— leon stavrinakis (@leonstav) November 17, 2013
During Leon Stavrinakis' time as a member of the S.C. General Assembly, the one-time Charleston County Council member has kept a relatively low profile. While he has been prone to crack wise on Twitter, he's been more of a Punxsutawney Phil-style politician who peaks his head out of his groundhog home every few months, looks for his shadow, and heads back inside where no one can see him. And with good reason.Stavrinakis' goal has never been to be a high-profile state legislator. He's never had his eye on the governor's office or a post in D.C. There's one job and one job alone that Leon wants — and that's the office of mayor.
