Middleton seeks to bring “strong, moral leadership” to council
MARCH 30, 2020 -- The Rev. Kylon Middleton has filed to run for a West Ashley-North Charleston seat on Charleston County Council to help steer the region in a new direction and make progress.
“I'm running because we need strong moral leadership on Charleston County Council for a change,” said Middleton, senior pastor of Mount Zion AME Church in downtown Charleston. “We need leadership that will commit to a bold plan to improve traffic and transportation, invest in infrastructure and action now to secure affordable housing opportunities for all our citizens.
“I'd like to offer that leadership and would appreciate your support and vote,” said Middleton, who filed as a Democrat for the open 6th district seat on council currently held by retiring former chairman Vic Rawl. The district stretches from Bees Ferry Road in West Ashley to North Charleston.
Middleton, a Charleston native who retired in 2014 as a school principal and administrator, has served in major leadership roles as a leading pastor in the area. For three years, he led the City of Charleston's Illumination Project to strengthen relationships between police and the community. Middleton also chairs the YWCA Tri-County MLK Ecumenical celebration and the Charleston 350th Community Outreach and Service Committee. He is a member of the Social Justice Racial Equity Collaborative.
Bishop Samuel Lawrence Green, Sr., Presiding Prelate of the Seventh Episcopal District of the AME Church says that Kylon Middleton is the candidate who will bring Strong, Moral Leadership to Charleston County Council.
