Scott is a graduate of Leadership Georgia, the Conservative Policy Leadership Institute, and LEAD Atlanta. Their family enjoys hiking, tennis, traveling and pickleball.
Scott believes we must pay greater attention to the curriculum and values our public schools are instilling in our children and will always fight to keep politics out of the classroom. As a parent and a taxpayer, Scott is passionate about ensuring that your tax dollars follow your student – giving you greater flexibility in education. Scott believes children learn best in a classroom setting, free of bureaucratic mandates.
With the rapid rise in crime in Atlanta, we need leaders who prioritize public safety now more than ever. As a father of three, Scott understands the importance of keeping our North Fulton community safe and secure. In the State House, Scott will be a dependable supporter of our local police, always ensuring they have the resources and support needed to do their jobs effectively.
Georgia’s economy is on the right track, with unemployment at a record low and companies nationwide moving to our state. However, we face serious challenges from supply chain issues, inflation, and workforce shortages. Scott will employ his public policy and business expertise to help strengthen Georgia’s economy through cutting regulations, reducing taxes, and supporting expansion of our ports.
