To be considered for endorsement, candidates completed a written questionnaire and participated in an interview with members of the CMCC PAC. Throughout the process, they were questioned about their views on key issues facing the metro region including: housing attainability, infrastructure and long-range planning among other critical issues. After extensive review, the CMCC PAC Board voted to endorse these candidates.
There are a number of strong candidates running for City Council and all are passionate about serving. The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee believes these three candidates are the best candidates based on their likelihood to support balanced, sustainable growth and vote in favor of a strong business climate.
“All of the candidates endorsed by the CMCC PAC support a positive business climate and are aligned with the Chamber’s priorities for growth. Each is committed to serving constituents in their districts but also understands the connection between local decisions and the continued economic prosperity of the larger region,” said Chappy McKay, chairman of the CMCC PAC.
