Charleston Metro Chamber PAC announces endorsement for Charleston City Council

October 19, 2021

The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee (Chamber PAC) announced its endorsement of Robert Mitchell for Charleston City Council District 4.

To be considered for the endorsement, candidates for open seats completed a written questionnaire and participated in an interview with Chamber PAC members. The process revealed candidates’ perspective on critical issues facing the City of Charleston and the metro region including: housing attainability, infrastructure investment, regional planning, Lowcountry Rapid Transit, flooding and the completion of the Mark Clark Expressway.

“All of the candidates endorsed by the Chamber PAC support a positive business climate and are aligned with the Chamber’s pillar priorities: mobility, livability and business climate,” said David Hand, Chairman of the Chamber PAC. “All understand the connection between local decisions and the continued economic prosperity of the larger region.”

Robert Mitchell is the longest serving member on Charleston City Council and has earned a great deal of respect from his fellow councilmembers and constituents. He currently serves as chair of the Community Development Committee, one of the most powerful committees in the city. Mitchell believes that flooding, the rapidly rising cost of housing and educating our young people are the top three critical issues facing the city. He is known for his ability to communicate with constituents of diverse backgrounds and can often be seen walking the streets late into the night and early morning hours positively engaging his citizens.
