Why I Wish To Serve Sea Pines:

Like all of us in Sea Pines, we are here by choice for the unique balance of environment, residential and resort living.  The next three to five years will determine how successful we are going to be as a community in balancing the inherent contentions between these three elements.

It remains critical to continue the stewardship begun 50+ years ago as the older homes are replaced; the resort completes replacing aging facilities and seeks to develop new ones, and as the surrounding environment outside our gates continues to evolve.

Preserving what has made our community unique and improving it for those that follow enhances the quality of life for all of us. This is a stewardship I would like to contribute to and be a part of.

Questions From The Community:     

In preparation for the upcoming Board of Director elections for CSA and ASPPPO, the Nominating Committees of each of these Boards asked Sea Pines Property Owners for candidate questions in advance.

61 questions were submitted to the Nominating Committees of CSA and ASPPPO to be asked of the board candidates. Questions were grouped into six categories, Personal, General, Finance/ Revenue, Gate, Governance and Referendum. Please note that only the questions from the community are included to be asked of the candidates. Opinions, statements, dissertations or preambles or other comments included by a property owner were removed so that the candidate could address the question. Some statements had to be modified to appear in the form of a question.

Each candidate received the same list of questions and was able to provide their summary related to each of the six categories.
