As many of you know, I am running for City Council, so am providing some information about me:
I was born in Charleston in 1958, and was raised on both James Island and Folly Beach. My parents built a summer home in 1968 near the Washout, and I spent many a summer day on the beach. After I graduated from James Island High School, my parents moved to the beach full time in 1978. I lived with them during my school breaks from the College of Charleston. After graduating from USC Law School, I moved to Folly in 1986. My wife Kathy and I were married in 1992. My 3 sons were raised on Folly, and they all attended James Island public schools. My oldest son, Justin, graduated from UNC Charlotte, and lives in N.C., with his wife and daughter. My second son, Gregory, is a senior at the Citadel, and will graduate this May. My youngest, Christopher, is a sophomore at the College of Charleston majoring in chemistry and plans to become a school teacher.
My wife is a local physician, and I am an attorney, having practiced for 30 years. I served on the James Island Charter High School Board for 3 years, which oversaw a 14 million dollar budget and a 25 million dollar renovation project. I am a member of the James Island Presbyterian Church and a volunteer football coach at First Baptist High School, where we won back to back State Championships.
I grew up on Folly when it was “Mayberry by the Sea.” The pressure of continuous growth will intensify affecting our quality of life and small community atmosphere. We need to take a balanced approach to improve and protect the quality of life for the citizens of Folly. I believe that we need to rebalance the interest of our residents and our quality of life against the negative effects of unrestrained tourism and growth.
Folly renourishment will be a continuous long-term problem. We need to find additional sources of funding from State and Federal governments and tourism dollars. Improving our infrastructure such as roads, pedestrian/bike ways and water supply is also crucial. We should lobby our State government to allow us to use tourism dollars to help pay for infrastructure improvements.
With your help, we can move Folly in the Right Direction.
