Timothy J. Scott

Timothy Scott wants to serve on Williston Town Council because community service is important.

Scott, who grew up in a military family, moved to Williston nearly five years ago to care for his mother-in-law.

He was a manager for Save-a-Lot food stores for 11 years. Most recently he was over the Orangeburg store, but it closed two months ago. He is now a manager of BI-LO in Barnwell.

Scott is secretary for the Community Service Club in Williston and has helped with the back-to-school bash.

His wife, Annette Brown Scott, is a native of Williston. His daughter passed away about a year ago. He also has two stepdaughters who he looks at as his own daughters.

Why are you running for town council?

I’ve been in Williston about five years and I do a lot of things in the community. I’m part of the Community Service Club and I feel there are some things I can see that we as a community can work on as far as for the youth and bringing more jobs to community.

If elected, what are your goals? How do you hope to help Williston?

Try to get things done for the youth and generate more employment. Try to get community involved in different things, like community hayrides.

I want to have a united front here. I want to work with the people. I think I’ll be a good asset to this community and I will work very diligently to try to be successful and work with the mayor as close as I can.

What makes you the best candidate?

I’ve been with Save-a-Lot food stores since January 2007. I have a strong leadership ability. I bring that to the table. Also, I love getting out in the community and working with kids and everybody. I like to have a good time with people
