finding balanced solutions that benefit our entire community

Along with setting aside dedicated hours each week where residents can meet with me directly to discuss their concerns, my goal is to create a transparent, inclusive, and effective processes that address the concerns of all Folly Beach residents. By working together, I believe we can find balanced solutions that benefit our entire community.

Here’s my strategy for comprehensive and inclusive approaches for addressing issues like Short-Term Rentals (STR), public safety, community well-being, and environmental concerns:

Identifying Constituents for Working Meetings:

  • Diverse Representation: It’s essential to have a mix of perspectives to make informed decisions. I will ensure that our working meetings include residents without investment interests, those with investment interests, and sole investors. Each group brings a unique viewpoint, and all are stakeholders in the future of Folly Beach.
  • Open Call for Participation: To ensure transparency and inclusivity, I will issue an open call for residents who wish to participate in these meetings. This way, anyone with a vested interest or expertise in a particular area can come forward.
  • Collaboration with Local Organizations: Partnering with local community groups, environmental organizations, and business associations will help in identifying key individuals who can provide valuable insights into specific issues.

Approach to Resolving Issues

  • Data-Driven Decision Making: Before diving into solutions, it’s crucial to understand the scope and nuances of each issue. I will advocate for collecting data, conducting surveys, and researching best practices from other similar communities.
  • Facilitated Discussions: For contentious issues, I will consider bringing in neutral facilitators to guide the conversation, ensuring that all voices are heard and the discussion remains productive.
  • Feedback Loops: After each meeting, summaries and proposed action items will be shared with the broader community for feedback. This iterative approach ensures that we’re always moving in a direction that aligns with the community’s desires.

My primary objective is to ensure that the voices of Folly Beach residents are always at the forefront of our decisions. Together, we can shape a future that reflects our collective vision for our beloved community.
