Mike Seekings campaigns at Dockery’s
Mike Seekings made it two nights in a row campaigning on Daniel Island last week. On Monday night, he participated in the Daniel Island Neighborhood Association Mayoral Forum and on Tuesday he was a Dockery’s for a Daniel Island installment of his “Open Mike Night” series. Seekings connected with Daniel Islanders and fielded questions.
Daniel Island resident Anthony Noury asked Seekings about public boat access, noting that Berkeley doesn’t have saltwater public access, except for limited tide access at Bushy Park.
Seekings said, “One of the amenities that Daniel Island should have is deep water access. We will work hard with Berkeley County to make it happen."
