Elected officials, business community honor Brown at event

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Several local, state and federal elected officials gathered at the South Carolina Aquarium Thursday night to honor former Congressman Henry Brown.

The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce event included a special presentation honoring Brown's years of service in our region, state and nation. Brown did not seek another term for South Carolina's First Congressional District.

"It's been a real honor to be able to serve these 10 years in congress and some 16 years in the state legislature," Brown said. "I'm real grateful for the change these folks gave me to have so many great experiences."

Tim Scott is now serving in Brown's seat. Brown is currently not in an elected position.

The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce holds this event annually to recognize and thank legislators. It is also a great way for the business community to meet their local, state and federal legislator.
