I have always believed in serving the community in what ever capacity I can for which I might be suited. If the voters on SI are willing to entrust me with being a community servant, I will give my best efforts, time, and talents where ever I can.
Currently serving on the Town Council, completing my first term of 2 years.
Many of the issues are being addressed by the Property Owners's Association (POA), but the Town must ensure we have to proper mechanisms in place to make working on SI not only an easy experience but a pleasant one as well. We are a gated community, so it is essential we as a Town/POA combination appear to be a friendly and welcoming community.
As a Town we are investing heavily in upgrading our infrastructure to handle higher than normal tidal flooding. We must recognize that patterns in nature are clearly changing, and we have to adapt to those changes (better storm drainage, higher road crowning, and similar actions). Two major hurricane events in the 0as 11 months can put quite a strain on infrastructure, both constructed and natural--improving drainage and continuing program to keep our beaches and dunes as stable as possible.
Being on a barrier island, our community is particularly vulnerable to local flooding. Education is a key element in getting residents to understand what mitigating steps they can take to ensure the effects of flooding are less. We work closely with County officials as part of providing that education.
