Mayoral candidates for threatened SC town meet

Candidates for mayor of a South Carolina coastal town meet in a forum with the town's survival expected to be a topic of discussion.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports incumbent Mayor Mary Clark of the Town of James Island and her four challengers meet for the forum on Thursday.
Voters will make their choice in an Aug. 3 election.
The town has incorporated three times since the 1990s, but the first two were tossed after court challenges from the neighboring city of Charleston.
The latest incorporation was upheld by a circuit judge in 2008 but Charleston has again appealed to the state Supreme Court. The justices could issue a ruling next year.
