CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Mount Pleasant's mayor touted an article in Money magazine that gave his town high praise.
Mayor Will Haynie retweeted a Mount Pleasant Government post on Twitter that linked to the article, titled, “This is the Best Place to Live in Every State,” which lists Mount Pleasant as South Carolina’s top choice. Haynie’s tweet read, in part, “Of course.”
With a population of 82,416, the city boasts a medium household income that is nearly double South Carolina’s statewide average, the article states. Money’s editors also pointed to Mount Pleasant having the “lowest crime rate of South Carolina’s biggest cities” and test scores “well above the state average.”
The article did not rank the cities against each other, but merely chose what its editors felt was the ideal city or town to choose in each of the 50 states.
