Daniel Rickenmann, Mayor, City of Columbia

The City of Columbia, SC has had the ‘Eeyore’ syndrome for too long, according to Mayor Daniel Rickenmann. In office as the Mayor since January 2022, Daniel Rickenmann is on a mission to get the City to stop defining itself in terms of what it is close to (the mountains and the sea) and to start building on what we are.

We couldn’t agree more! How can we help?
