Special Guest Speaker: Mayor John Tecklenburg. Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg spent much of his career as a businessman and entrepreneur—a family legacy that began with the opening of his great-great-grandfather’s corner grocery store at St. Phillip and Wentworth streets in 1867. Since becoming mayor in 2016, Mayor Tecklenburg has been committed to improving citizens’ quality of life and making Charleston a city of opportunity for all. Mayor Tecklenburg has led initiatives to address housing affordability and homelessness in Charleston. These have including the closing of Tent City, a sprawling homeless encampment that had developed in our North Central neighborhood, and the formation of the Mayors’ Council on Homelessness and Affordable Housing, which works to develop a long-term regional approach to these challenges.
