“We have such a welcoming city,” states Heath in the article. “We want the film business here in North Charleston. Production crews are invited to work directly with me. When they need something outside of my limits, I simply make a phone call. Everyone in Mayor Summey’s administration is eager to help because they know how important it is to him. We have been very successful in working that way.”
