Briny Breezes: Retired CPA joins Town Council

Lowen Poock, a retired certified public accountant who began coming to the area back in the 1970s for business, is Briny Breezes’ newest alderman.

Poock, 69, said he has owned in Briny for 11 years, at first coming down from the Midwest for the season. Since 2003, he’s considered Briny Breezes his full-time home. And it’s not his first time in town politics. Poock is from Iowa and served as a planning and zoning commissioner there, and was also on a local board of adjustments, he said.
Here, he thinks the police contract — recently signed with Ocean Ridge — and the annual budget will be the most important town business. Poock said his friend, Mayor Roger Bennett, persuaded him to serve — and he has no misgivings.

“You’ve got to give something back,” he said after the Oct. 28 town meeting.
