Charleston: Stavrinakis Receives Endorsement

| by Will GallowayColumbia, S.C. |

Charleston Mayoral Candidate Leon Stavrinakis, whom we have endorsed, received the endorsement of Paul Tinkler, who dropped out of the mayoral race earlier this month.

Stavrinakis, a 5th term SC House Representative is widely seen as the frontrunner for the race, and Tinkler’s endorsement may help him surpass the 50% threshold needed to avoid a runoff.

In an event announcing his endorsement, Tinkler said, “[Stavrinakis] will be a fierce advocate for the revitalization of our community.”

Also in the race for Mayor are businessman John Tecklenburg, who we also considered endorsing, 2014 Democratic Nominee for Secretary of State of SC Ginny Deerin, City Councilman William Dudley Gregorie, and businessman Maurice Washington.
