Wes Craven: A day in the life of the city’s ‘fairest’
Wes Craven is the new mayor of the city of Charleston.
He took office Saturday after winning a surprise runoff election in April.
Craven received more votes than the two challengers in his bid, but only by a single vote.
Clements was defeated by incumbent mayor Greg Strimling by a 1,200-vote margin.
It was the second time in three years that a mayor’s election has been thrown into question. In 2010, Mayor Tim Scott was unseated by the then-majority-black City Council.
