Councilman John Gregg
Councilman John Gregg and his wife, Katie, first purchased property on Seabrook Island in 1997 and became full time residents in 2006. Prior to retirement, Councilman Gregg was intellectual property counsel for a machinery manufacturer in Cincinnati, OH.
Prior to election to Town Council, Councilman Gregg served on the Seabrook Island Property Owners Association Legal Committee. He has served on Town Council since 2013, serving as Mayor Pro Tempore since 2015. He is Chair of the town’s Public Safety Committee and serves as Public Safety Official under the town’s Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan. He also serves as the town’s liaison to the Seabrook Island Club’s Long-Range Planning Committee.
As Public Safety Official, Councilman Gregg leads the work of the town’s Disaster Recovery Council and coordinates disaster training and exercise sessions for town and community officials twice per year. Those sessions provide valuable information which is used by participating organizations to improve their emergency response plans.
Councilman Gregg led the preparation, submission, and follow-through of the town’s requests for state and federal disaster grant funding for costs incurred as a result of Hurricanes Matthew, Irma and Florence. Those efforts have resulted in more than $180,000 in reimbursements for the town and Utility Commission.
