Best Bumper Sticker Turned Political Movement 

Save Shem Creek

Staff Pick

It may have started with a Facebook page and a bumper sticker, but November’s elections left few questioning the power of proper branding. Last fall, the people of Mt. Pleasant sent a clear message to the leaders of the town by voting in four new council members, all backed by Save Shem Creek. It was a tidal shift for the seaside community, but the political waters would just get rockier as Mayor Linda Page and the returning members of Town Council contended with the new guard. At times, it has seemed like Mt. Pleasant’s governing body was too divided to ever reach any sort of consensus on how best to lead the town, but maybe now everyone’s had time to settle in. After all, it’s never easy to go from a vocal minority to a community’s new ruling class. —Dustin Waters
