Charleston Mayor Endorsement: Leon Stavrinakis

America’s longest serving mayor will be retiring this year, and the people of Charleston have the responsibility to replace him. We would encourage my readers to take a serious look at SC Representative Leon Stavrinakis. During his tenure in the state legislature, Stavrinakis has proven himself to be a competent, bipartisan leader. He also has the ideal background for a large-city mayor.

  • Stavrinakis was a prosecutor, and he understands that public safety should be a priority, especially at a time when Charleston is becoming a major tourist destination.
  • He understands the need for infrastructure innovation, such as syncing traffic lights and completing I-526, and has the experience in both the state legislature and city council needed to make it happen.
  • As a small business owner, he understands the need to spend taxpayer’s money frugally, but also fruitfully.
