What a pick -- right in the middle of the Limbaugh blow-up. I suppose he'd fit right in with all the GOP pols who preach purity and get caught with their pants down.
Editor alert: Correct usage in this case is "Have you ever swum...."
I agree with bill e. Grampa Joe may be getting on in years, but until a viable candidate can step forward who has a reasonable chance of accomplishing even a quarter of what Mayor Riley has for this city, I'm sticking with him.
maybe about time to let someone else try their hand at being mayor. it would be nice to see what just one other mayor would do, since he's been in what, 34 or so years?
however in the last 15 years, there as been a radical improvement to the downtown area, places i can go without immediate threat to my well-being, so i guess he can't be all bad.
I'm open to any evidence to the contrary.
He has no vision and he doesn't listen.
Great story! FYI - Our gay troops are saying "Do Ask, Do Tell" now at http://OutMilitary.com - the New Social Network for Gay Service members.
Dan Davis has done a great job for Berkeley County and it showed in the election results.
Agreed. Give Bill a key.
I guess you'd need to define "good" political fights. Their tactics have something to be desired.
The SCCCL started off as a good organiczation but has, over the years, created a bureaucracy in their organization that requires creating crisis after crisis to keep funded.
Good organization. Liked the window painting they did a few years back.
I just wish that Riley would put Planning Director Tim Keane ns a leaky rowboat during the crosstown flooding. Keane and his band of we-will-grant-a-variance for anything planners have ruined life in the city.
Last time I looked at state law, variances for parking, height and setbacks required proving a "hardship" existed. Since the BZA doesn't care about state law, this doesn't apply to Charleston.
Mrs. Zucker is the best of the best. Excellent choice, Charleston.
If you are not a bicyclist or live near his house on the peninsula, he won't return your phone calls or emails.
I would never have voted for him if I had known that he is so easily swayed by bike advocates and the downtown crowd. He is also a master at telling people on both sides of an issue that he supports their side. One to watch, for sure, but not because he is the best council member.
Name one thing Mallard has accomplished for his district.
He has spent a lot of time the last year in court fighting creditors and foreclosure actions. Look under court actions on the Charleston County Clerk website at
Go under Circuit Court on the left side of the page, click ACCEPT at the bottom of the disclaimer page and then put in his name on the next page. Note the settlement with Harbor Bank in January and the pending actions.
Why would anyone want to run for office when they can't even pay their bills?
Chris is doing an excellent job. He has vision and he listens. Those are two great qualities in a leader.
Mayor Joe may be a powerful force in the lowcountry but last I checked he had no control over sea level or our annual rainfall. Charleston would not be the City it is without Mayor Joe at the helm the last 9 terms!
I will be the first to admit I was a little nervous when we lost Y.E. on the council -- but also first to proclaim Mike is doing a stellar job !
LLF Rocks! from promoting local businesses to getting local food in restaurants to protecting our endangered species, the local farmer -- LLF is all about bringing us together as community. Keep up the good work!
I had so many yolks I didn't use
