2015 Charleston Mayoral Race: Energy, Offshore Drilling, & Renewable Resources

by Andy Hollis

The 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico along with regular accidents like the recent pipeline spill that closed down numerous beaches in California have motivated 17 municipalities and counties in South Carolina to pass resolutions opposing oil and gas exploration and development off the South Carolina coast. Mayor Riley has also been a vocal opponent of offshore drilling.

We asked the candidates:

Do you support offshore drilling? 

Do you support renewable energy?
