CHARLESTON, S.C. (Sept. 20, 2019) -- The Seekings for Mayor campaign today launched an online store featuring the hottest looks of the (campaign) season. The store offers a range of Seekings for Mayor products including, just in time for fall, hoodies.
The store is now live at VoteSeekings.com/store and will be updated with new pieces throughout the campaign.
“Traffic congestion isn’t going anywhere unless we make it go somewhere,” Mike Seekings, the CARTA Board of Directors Chairman, said. “One way to do it is to use alternative forms of transportation like public transit, carpooling, biking and walking. On Dump the Pump day, we hope everyone will give CARTA a chance. We think they’ll be pleasantly surprised by the experience.”

The site currently serves the Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority’s downtown shuttle designed for hospitality workers; that service will relocate to an adjacent parking lot until it finds a permanent home, according to Charleston City Councilman Mike Seekings.
Last week, City Council voted to apply for a $32 million grant from the State Infrastructure Bank for the Low Battery Sea Wall Repair. If successful, there will be additional funding for flood mitigation. That is a good thing.
Charlestonians deserve relief and protection from flooding, and I will always support that.
A closer look, however, shows that a lack of forethought and planning by the Mayor has put the City in a tough spot and left our residents shortchanged.
“This is the region’s first true, permanent park-and-ride facility, and it’s another step forward for transit and alternative modes of transportation,” CARTA board chairman Mike Seekings said in a statement. “It’s going to be safe, clean and offer amenities that will please our longtime riders and hopefully attract many new ones.”

District 8 Councilman Mike Seekings, who’s running for mayor, said he’d like to take apart the accommodations overlay and examine downtown property by property, allowing City Council to designate more precisely where hotels should and shouldn’t be.
