Major accomplishments and continuing goals include:
The majority of all accomplishments come through our Committees and approval of the majority of Council. That is where the hard work is done.
All cities have three major functions that must be provided for their citizens. These are services of Police, Fire and Engineering. Engineering includes the areas of sanitation, storm water management and flooding mitigation. Please note that I am a member of the following committees

Special Facilities Committee
The Human Resources Committee
Ways and Means
Underground Utility Committee
West Ashley Revitalization Commission.
I work with Community leaders from the private sector, our Mayor, 3 city council members, one county council member, city staff, contractors, and the individuals appointed as commissioners by City Council, and all who attend our meetings. This group completed and published the West Ashley Revitalization Plan. A large amount of time, effort, and study went into our meetings. This is a plan and the ongoing work of the commission will continue to hone and refine the contents. As published, the plan has 166 recommended actions. At this time, they have reported that 65 items have been addressed and action has either been completed or is in process. Citadel Mall Revitalization plan is close to becoming a reality.
The committee included the Mayor of Charleston, the Mayors of Seabrook and Kiawah Islands, Charleston County Chairman Vic Rawl, Charleston County Councilmember Johnson from Johns Island, SC Senator Brown, and Johns Island city and county residents. I was the City of Charleston Council person in the Committee. The purpose is to get all interested parties together to find one consolidated answer to Johns Island growth issues. Meetings have been suspended while membership changes and funding sources are determined for projects being identified.
The organization is made up of Berkeley, Charleston, Dorchester Council of Government members and includes Mayors of all municipalities and appointed council members, CARTA, SCDOT and staffs. Items currently being discussed are I-526, Lowcountry Corridor projects, FY2017-2022 Transportation improvement Programs, CHATS 2040 Long Range Transportation plans and I 526 issues.
