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
Tommy, I think it's rather obvious why DeMint has a problem with Haley. It's the same problem Woodard and Mosteller have.
Woodard and Mosteller still have each other--and they deserve each other. They can get together and have fun by twisting their heads all the way around and engaging in projectile vomiting contests while reciting the ten commandments backwards in Latin.
And apparently, Woodard still has his best friend forever Senator Jim DeMint. DeMint has still not divorced himself from Woodard, his big pal and co-author, and waited until the Friday before the election to finally make an official endorsement of Haley and only then due to the pain of embarrassment.
Why does DeMint have a problem with Haley? Does he consider her competition for a future office?
Why a "Best Charlestonian" but no Best James Islander, Folly Beacher, etc?
Have you ever tried the Monte Cristo? Yum yum.
Give Bill a key!
Go get em Mallard. You do "Lisen to Us."
Greg I know you are an award winning journalist but this makes no more sense than the people who voted for Bill Woolsey because he was going to help stop crime on the Island??
To wit, the last sentence seems to be from another unrelated article.
People make history, not persons.
Without Mallard's push-back, many issues facing city would have remained unaddressed by the Mayor. Look at the Mayor's State of the City address. Half the items he spoke to resulted from Mallard's unrelenting focus. Troublemakers make history. Ask John Adams, Frederick Douglass, Winston Churchill, and Susan B. Anthony!
