11214060_1655556464656893_1070098149836145258_nThis Monday, Butcher & Bee and the BACE League of Charleston will join together to host a Mayoral Forum focused on the local Food and Beverage (F&B) community. The event will be held from 1 pm until 3 pm at the Culinary Institute of Charleston's Palmer Campus at 66 Columbus Street.

Organizers say the goal of the nonpartisan event is to increase voter turnout and help the F&B community make a more informed vote.  All six mayoral candidates have committed to attending.

The forum will focus on issues like:

  • Permitting
  • Municipal oversight
  • Parking
  • Late night regulations and law enforcemen
  • Workforce housing
  • Downtown living costs
  • Public transportation
  • Nightlife growth and promotion
  • Livability Court

BACE spokesperson and attorney Elliott A. Smith will moderate the discussion, while receiving input from a panel of F&B representatives. Unlike previous forums, the candidates will be permitted to respond directly to one another in limited circumstances.
