The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce is endorsing City of Charleston mayoral candidate Leon Stavrinakis.
"Leon Stavrinakis has a long, proven track record of supporting and funding Charleston roads," according to a release from the chamber's Political Action Committee. "He is committed to finishing I-526, fixing our traffic problems and investing in local roads. That proven record and commitment is why the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce has enthusiastically endorsed Leon's campaign for mayor of Charleston."
Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bryan Derreberry cited Stavrinakis' voting record on taxes as another reason for the endorsement.
"Leon in fact voted to keep our tax dollars right here at home and spend millions in local Charleston road projects rather than sending more money to Columbia," Derreberry said. "Leon's record on infrastructure funding is second to none."
