Aaron C. Higgins ran for office to take on the hard work of helping our community in the most hands-on way possible. Scroll down to learn more about Aaron and his journey to council.

A place to call

Aaron’s journey began in California, but his family soon moved to Northeast Ohio where he spent the majority of his childhood. As a teenager, he and his family relocated to the rapidly growing city of Colorado Springs, where he met and married his wife, Ashley, in 2009. In 2015, they left the mountains of Colorado behind and made the cross-country trek to the Coastal Empire, where they found their forever home in the charming city of Pooler.

Inspired by the potential for growth and community building, Aaron became involved in solving neighborhood problems and organizing events. Believing that he could make an even bigger impact on the city as a whole, he ran for office in 2019 and was elected for a four-year term (2020-2023).

Despite his busy schedule as a city council member, Aaron remains deeply engaged with the community and continues to make a positive impact.
