Many are excited to hear Tecklenberg’s plan for continuing to keep Charleston as one of the greatest cities in the world. In West Ashley and James Island, many want to hear the new mayor’s vision for growth and revitalization for their part of town. On Wednesday, Jan. 27 from 11:30am - 1pm at the Town & Country Inn, the new mayor will speak to the West Ashley James Island Business Association (WAJIBA) about his plans for the region.
