Marguerite H. Brown
Did you know that the Marguerite H. Brown Municipal Center bears the name of one of our most important leaders? Beginning in 1975, Councilmember Marguerite H. Brown served on City Council for 39 years during four decades of incredible change and growth. In 2011, she described one change she had noticed to the Goose Creek Gazette. “When they were asked where they live, people used to say, ‘I live in North Charleston,’” she said. “Now, people say with pride, ‘I live in Goose Creek.’ I think that’s important. We have grown into a respected city … into something we can all be proud of.” A portrait of Mrs. Brown, who passed away in 2014, is displayed in the lobby at City Hall.

John McCants
Few leaders played a more significant role in Goose Creek’s history than John McCants. Mr. McCants, who passed away in 2017, was the first African-American to be elected to Goose Creek City Council, where he served from 1992 to 2016. His steady leadership on Council came during a time of transformation for the City and region. His time in office was but one chapter of a life dedicated to serving others. A U.S. Army Veteran, Mr. McCants spent decades as a liaison between low-income families and their local government. His many volunteer efforts included serving the United Methodist Relief Agency, Charleston Area Senior Citizens, and the Berkeley-Dorchester Economic Development Board. The John McCants Veterans Park, set to open later this year, will forever be a testament to his character and lifetime of service.   
Joe Daning
Did you know that S.C. Rep. Joe Daning served on Goose Creek City Council two times? Rep. Daning served as a member of City Council from 1978 to 1986, and again from 1992 until 2008. Rep. Daning is pictured at his final City Council meeting in 2008, after he won a seat in the South Carolina House of Representatives. Pictured at right is former Councilmember Mark Phillips.
