Town of Seabrook Island Candidate – Patricia Fox

Each of the three different entities on Seabrook Island will hold elections in the coming months. Since Seabrook Island is a municipal town in SC, its election is on November 2, a statewide election day. The Seabrook Island Property Owners Association (SIPOA) and the Seabrook Island Club will hold their separate elections in early 2022.

The information about the candidate in this post is for the town election only.

Patrica Fox is running for one of the 4 Town Council seats.

Patricia Fox moved to the Lowcountry in 1976 and was introduced to Seabrook Island that same year while working for a local advertising agency. Pat and her husband John have a long relationship with the island. They owned a Fiddlers Cove townhouse in the late 1980s and returned in 2008 when they moved into their permanent home on Seabrook Island Road.

After becoming a full-time resident, Pat continued to work as the Dean of the Film, Media and Visual Arts Division at Trident Technical College. Upon retiring in 2017, she joined the Tidelines team as both an editor and graphic designer. From 2019-20, she was a member of the Seabrook Island Green Space Conservancy Board where she has used her skills to create a new SIGSC website as well as design all the printed material for the annual galas and fall newsletters.

During her first term on Town Council, Pat has been responsible for Public Relations/Communications. During the last two years, she has worked with the Town Administrator on updates to the town website and more frequent, timely posts submitted to Tidelines. Earlier this year, she began the Tidelines TOSI Clips column which enables readers to select specific topics from videos of both the Town Council and Ways & Means meetings. In 2020, she was a member of the ad hoc committee on Short Term Rentals and is currently working on evaluating and reconfiguring town committees. This spring, she became the Town’s liaison to the SIPOA Long Range Planning Committee. She is also a 2021 graduate of the SC Municipal Elected Officials Institute of Government.

As to why she first ran for Town Council two years ago, Pat says that her over 40-year relationship with Seabrook Island and the Charleston area affords her a long-term view of the challenges that face our community. She is committed to helping preserve the quality of life on Seabrook Island which includes not only the well-being of the residents but also the conservation of our natural resources.
