This Monday, Butcher & Bee and the BACE League of Charleston will join together to host a Mayoral Forum focused on the local Food and Beverage (F&B) community. The event will be held from 1 pm until 3 pm at the Culinary Institute of Charleston’s Palmer Campus at 66 Columbus Street.
Organizers say the goal of the nonpartisan event is to increase voter turnout and help the F&B community make a more informed vote. All six mayoral candidates have committed to attending.
The forum will focus on issues like:
- Municipal oversight
- Late night regulations and law enforcemen
- Workforce housing
- Downtown living costs
- Public transportation
- Nightlife growth and promotion
- Livability Court
BACE spokesperson and attorney Elliott A. Smith will moderate the discussion, while receiving input from a panel of F&B representatives. Unlike previous forums, the candidates will be permitted to respond directly to one another in limited circumstances.
