Congressman Mark Sanford represents South Carolina's First District which includes the coastal cities of Charleston, Beaufort, Hilton Head and many smaller sea island communities. This is his full interview from the SCETV documentary "Sea Change."
The following questions were asked in part one of this video:
- As a lifelong South Carolina Low Country resident, what are the changes you have seen overtime in regard to the impacts of sea level rise, flooding and catastrophic weather?
- How do constituents feel about this subject? Is it on their radar?
- How does Charleston get the money to address infrastructure-type issues?
- How do we get different levels of government to work together to productively address some of these issues?
