“Forever Tybee”

by Sandy Major

Forever Tybee is a non-partisan political action committee formed by a group of concerned Tybee voters and property owners.

During a recent Forever Tybee Potluck Dinner members had an opportunity to ask Council members Kathryn Williams, Paul Wolff and Frank Schuman questions about City issues. Bill Garbett was unable to attend but provided the group with his insights through a letter read for the group.  It was a highly informative session for all involved. Another similar event will be scheduled in the fall.

Forever Tybee will also hold fundraisers and social events in the coming months.

Many of our members have been lucky enough to call Tybee home all of our adult lives. Others moved here and have lived on Tybee from 6 to 20 years. We all realize how fortunate we are to call Tybee home now. Regardless of where we’re from or how long we’ve lived here, we all share a strong commitment to Tybee’s future.

Forever Tybee is committed to supporting City Council candidates who adhere to the following core values:

• Protecting Tybee’s beaches & marshes, artistic & historical treasures, small businesses, and the unique character of the Island
• Upholding the City Charter, Master Plan, a meaningful Ethics Ordinance and all other  city laws, codes, and ordinances
• Demonstrating strong fiscal responsibility and knowledge of financial principles
* Listening objectively and respectfully to citizens and members of City Committees presenting at Council Meetings
* Respecting the City Manager form of government by avoiding direct involvement in the day-to-day operations of the City.

During the months ahead Forever Tybee hopes to attract others who are interested in supporting Ethical, Open and Transparent Government on Tybee Island. For membership information please visit our website at This website, keeps members informed about the activities of the organization.

In the near future it will also feature a section about Council voting.
