is committed to creating job opportunities for our citizens and stimulating economic development.
To do this, County Council
must have a comprehensive plan to address roads and infrastructure needs in order to attract quality businesses to our area.
This will require intergovernmental cooperation.
Attracting companies increases the employment base and under existing law provides a source of revenue for improvement projects and school funding.
For example, the new Amazon facility, which Scott
helped to locate in Lexington County, will contribute over 133 million dollars in payroll to our local economy and over 2.3 million dollars in property taxes during its first year of operation; and over 1.8 billion dollars in income benefits to Lexington County over 10 years.
has the contacts, unique knowledge, experience and expertise to aggressively create opportunities for Lexington starting on Day One.
believes that "public service is a public trust", and as YOUR representative on County Council he
will represent YOUR interests with integrity, honesty, and with full transparency.
will maintain a website, dedicated email, and use social media such as Facebook
where District 3 constituents can share their opinions around-the-clock on issues affecting District 3 and Lexington County; he
will hold regular "Council to the Curb" neighborhood meetings throughout District 3 and attend Homeowners' Association
meetings to listen to constituent issues.
To further full transparency in all Council decisions, Scott
supports televising Council proceedings on local television.
A Proven Commitment to Quality Education
Teaching our Future
To Scott Adams
, education is more than a political agenda.
Growth in our community has resulted in growth in our schools.
Quality schools contribute to economic development and the attraction of new businesses to our community, and Scott has years of experience working with the School District One leadership team and is pictured here discussing education issues with Lexington School District 1 Superintendent Dr. Karen Woodward.
As Chair of the Lexington Chamber, an organization of over 800 small businesses, Scott
knows what it is like to "roll up his
sleeves" and work to grow our local small businesses, which are the backbone of our community.
Our small businesses need the tools, talent and resources to remain competitive and positively contribute to our local economy, and Scott
understands first-hand the needs small businesses have and the sacrifices that those who own and operate them make.
has helped organize and manage small businesses and his
wife, Kathy, is a Lexington small businessperson.
also understands how excessive and unnecessary government regulation, taxes and license fees can stymie entrepreneurship and threaten the survival of small businesses.
Scott's commitment to growing Lexington's small businesses was one of the reasons he
was elected by the membership to lead the local Chamber, where he
helped launch programs to educate local business leaders on management and personnel issues; and he
is frequently seen "on the street" providing encouragement to our local business owners-even spending time in the evenings and on weekends helping out in the businesses where needed.
Scott is a longtime advocate of "Lexington First" purchasing policies that encourage local businesses to buy from each other, and believes that Lexington County government must buy locally where practical.
Scott will continue to be a strong advocate for our local businesses and work tirelessly to grow our local economy, grow a local trained workforce and career opportunities for our students, encourage entrepreneurship, and make Lexington County a desirable place to own a business.
As your Council representative, Scott
will ensure that the men and women who serve as law enforcement officers, fire fighters and first responders will have the necessary resources and proper training to do their jobs.
Funding essential government services and ensuring the services provided are efficient and cost-effective will be a priority.
Many District 3 neighborhoods have concerns about the accessibility of fire and emergency equipment and these will be addressed starting on Day One.
has worked closely with law enforcement personnel throughout Lexington County and understands their needs.
