The Beaufort Gazette - - Obituaries -

Hil­ton Head in 2000 from Crofton, Md., where he worked as a cor­po­rate plan­ner for Ver­i­zon. He and his wife, Mar­cia, live in Hil­ton Head Plan­ta­tion.

Col­lett is the chair­man of Vol­un­teers in Medicine, and said he wants to rep­re­sent Ward 6 so he can help “im­prove telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions on the is­land” such as WiFi and cell ser­vice. He also said he wants to fo­cus on trans­porta­tion and work­force hous­ing is­sues.

Col­lett ran for mayor in 2010. Now, he hopes to help bring the coun­cil to­gether.

“We need some re­con- cil­i­a­tion of our town coun­cil,” he said. “I mean it’s been a lot of one group against the other.”

Col­lett filed around noon on Dec. 7, ac­cord­ing to his state­ment of can­di­dacy form.

GLENN STAN­FORD

Stan­ford, 75, has lived on Hil­ton Head full-time since 2006 af­ter va­ca­tion­ing on the is­land as a teenager. He moved from At­lanta where he was a lawyer in a pri­vate prac­tice. He lives in Hil­ton Head Plan­ta­tion and was the chair­man of the town’s board of zon­ing ap­peals.

Stan­ford sits on the town’s plan­ning com­mis­sion and said he wants to con­tinue work­ing on solv­ing work­force hous­ing is­sues on the is­land and im­prove the safety of cross­walks.

Stan­ford also said that he be­lieves Mitchelville, the site of the coun­try’s first freed­men’s com­mu­nity, “can and should be” one of the “great sto­ries of the United States.”

“I love this com­mu­nity,” Stan­ford said. “I want to see more of a fo­cus on the res­i­dents of Hil­ton Head ver­sus (a fo­cus on) tourists.”

Stan­ford filed around noon on Dec. 7, ac­cord­ing to his state­ment of can­di­dacy form.
