The election is over, and John Tecklenburg will be the new mayor of Charleston.
John has been a good friend of mine for nearly 40 years. We first met when we were both in college in Washington, DC. Wte lived a couple of blocks apart in Charleston; our children were born about the same time and as they grew up, we were as likely to have each other’s kids at the dinner table as our own. John got me involved in lots of his community projects and I did the same. I was a part of his campaign from the beginning – through all the ups and down.
