About Scott

My name is Scott Millimet and I am excited to announce my candidacy for the Town Council of Sullivan’s Island.

I have been a resident of the island for nine years and the uniqueness of our Sullivan’s is reinforced each and every day. Having semi-retired from the institutional asset management business over two years ago, I am able to spend more time at our beautiful home.This has allowed me to watch with growing concern as our town has been fractured by an issue that could have been resolved in a much more cohesive, less divisive manner. That issue of course pertains to the Maritime Forest and the pending large scale cutting that has been put forth and approved by the current council.

I was/am, not in favor of this settlement. A council person’s responsibility to their constituency lies in listening to their concerns, leading towards a consensus and executing and delivering solutions that represent that constituency.

No doubt – in this case there was no listening, little leading and a poorly executed and delivered settlement.

It is my pledge to the voters of Sullivan’s Island to provide a platform in which the council will listen to your concerns, provide transparency to the decision making process, and enact policies that are in the interest of our town as a whole, not a select few.

As background, I am an army brat and attended Texas A&M University where I received a BS in economics and an MS in agricultural economics (international trade). I spent over 40 years managing businesses around the globe and the US in the commodities and financial fields.

Most importantly, I am the lucky husband to Janet and the proud father of three children, one of which is a charter school principal, one of which is an air traffic controller and one that is about to start residency following four years of medical school. It seems that “giving back” runs in the family and it is now my turn to play catch up.

I am looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible during the campaign.

“Sullivan’s Island Town Council….Why Would You Want To do That!?”

Many have asked this obvious question…a question that reflects the divide that exists amongst the residents that make up our community. The answer is really quite simple.  I learned many things in my 40-year business career that encompassed building highly successful teams and businesses. The one lesson that stands out is that being a leader and making wise decisions requires input from all available sources (the more diverse the better). Output is almost always better with more input. Final decisions executed in an arena of openness leave few behind and bring the majority along. That is called consensus building.  Almost no one gets all they want; almost no one gets nothing they want; almost everyone gets something they want

The recent Maritime Forest decision was executed with de minimus input from the community.  It was arrived at in sessions that offered little to no transparency and resulted in a community divided. A bad process resulted in a bad outcome.

Our beloved Island Home is imminently facing many more critical decisions that will determine the quality of life for not only those in the here and now, but for generations to come.  Those decisions must not be executed in a similar fashion as that which led to the ruling on the Maritime Forest.

I am running for Town Council to ensure the process that determines our future is open to debate, inclusive, and executed with transparency. I am running to PRESERVE OUR ISLAND HOME!
