2015 Charleston Mayoral Race: The Cruise Industry

by Andy Hollis

Across the country, local and state governments have adopted regulations to protect their communities from negative externalities related to the cruise ship industry. While idling in our port, cruise ships release pollutants and gluts of tourists into downtown Charleston without paying the City any compensation. We asked the candidates: What are your thoughts on the cruise industry?

Ginny Deerin on the Cruise Industry
