Students, faculty and staff are invited to have coffee – and a conversation – with Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg.

The mayor will be at the Starbucks in Addlestone Library at 205 Calhoun St. from 9-10 a.m. on Wednesday, April 18, 2018. Elected in 2015, Tecklenburg is the City of Charleston’s first new mayor in 40 years. He follows long-time mayor Joe Riley, who served 10 terms from 1975 to 2016.

Since taking office, Tecklenburg has focused on issues of city-wide livability including improving flooding and stormwater runoff, affordable housing and the revitalization of West Ashley.
