“We love this city, and it has been an honor to serve this community as Mayor and First Lady for almost 8 years, and with your support – we look forward to the next four,” Sandy Tecklenburg said.

Veteran Clay Middleton, former State Rep. William Cogswell, and Charleston City Councilman A. Peter Shahid, Jr. have announced their run for mayor as well.
