Royal Baptist Missionary Church

This forum is free and open to all. You don't have to be a North Charleston resident or business owner to attend.

The 2023 North Charleston Mayoral Forum, hosted by Lowcountry Local First, and held at the Royal Missionary Baptist Church on September 26, 2023, will provide an important opportunity for North Charleston Mayoral candidates to speak from one stage, directly to their constituents, about issues important to the community. Notably, the 2023 North Charleston mayoral race is the first time that 29-year incumbent Keith Summey is not on the ballot. As such, this forum will provide a stage for the slate of candidates to showcase their unique perspectives and plans with respect to a number of issues, likely including but not limited to:

  • Local-independent business issues and opportunities
  • Economic development (job creation, employment, etc)
  • Affordable housing
  • Transportation
  • Infrastructure
  • Public Safety

Moderator:  Brady Quirk-Garvan, North Charleston resident and Co-Owner of Money With A Mission Team at Natural Investments.
