Bid for mayor chance to hear from islanders

I would like to thank all the people who supported and voted for me in the recent Hilton Head Island mayoral election. It was quite a ride. September and October remain a blur for both Marcia and me. Ellen Winston was right there with us. We did more than 40 meet-and-greets, where supporters graciously opened their homes so I could meet their friends and neighbors. We also had more debates and candidate forums than I could ever have imagined. In the end, it was a wonderful experience. I got to meet so many people and hear their concerns and dreams for our island. I hope I was able to help raise the level of dialogue about our shared future. Jim Collett Hilton Head Island
