Top three priorities:

Ease traffic congestion. Become a regular voice at the Charleston Area Transportation Study meetings, where road funding is decided. Work with local, county and state government officials for funding.

Grow revenue by attracting new businesses while nurturing existing ones, including tax credits for expanding businesses.

Attract tourism, including bringing a boutique hotel into town, working with cruise companies to offer bus trips to Summerville area attractions and working with local destination to establish programs for those tourists.
