A COMMITMENT TO GROWING OUR SMALL BUSINESSES
Scott believes that our local Lexington economy thrives when our businesses and citizens shop locally and do business with each other. As a past Chairman of the Greater Lexington Chamber of Commerce, Scott is a passionate advocate for small businesses and small business owners who employ our citizens, provide career opportunities for our students, and stimulate our local economy. Scott helped establish "Lexington First" purchasing policies with local businesses and continues to be a strong advocate for keeping Lexington tax dollars and disposable income dollars in Lexington. When Scott became aware that a Lexington County company was purchasing key materials from a North Carolina supplier, but could purchase the same quality items from a Lexington County supplier at a competitive price and without the markup for delivery, he quickly arranged for representatives of the two companies to meet and the resulting business partnership, which provided new jobs for the Lexington supplier, continues to this day. Recently, when a Lexington small business owner was struggling and had to decide whether to have her home foreclosed or keep the business open and pay employees at Christmas, the Chamber of Commerce called on Scott for help. Scott helped organize a campaign called "Businesses Helping Business" that raised the money to make the delinquent mortgage payments and help the small business meet its payroll.
A COMMITMENT TO EDUCATION, OUR KIDS, AND LOCAL SCHOOLS
As a parent and businessman, Scott understands the need for quality schools and career education. He is a longtime passionate supporter of our local public schools, workforce training and development programs, and has worked diligently to create career opportunities for our students and young professionals. Scott was instrumental in establishing scholarships for Lexington County engineering students at the University of South Carolina, and works daily to find ways for our local students to obtain internship and scholarship opportunities. In recognition of his passion for creating internship opportunities for high school students with local businesses Scott was named the 2010 Friend of Career and Technology Education by the South Carolina Association of School Administrators.
Recently, when the Glenforest School was seeking to raise funds to purchase Kindles to assist special needs students with improving reading and comprehension skills, they called Scott for assistance. Not content to just raise money to purchase a few Kindle devices, Scott undertook a successful initiative to convince Amazon.com, the developer of the Kindle, to donate many Kindle devices to the school. The resulting partnership between Amazon.com and Glenforest was mutually beneficial with increased educational opportunities for the Glenforest students and a visible and successful marketing opportunity for Amazon.
A COMMITMENT TO SAFE NEIGHBORHOODS
As a past president of a District 3 homeowners' association, Scott recognizes the desire of our citizens to live in safe neighborhoods. Scott supports trained, adequately equipped and responsive law enforcement and fire protection personnel and will always be an advocate for safe and secure neighborhoods on County Council.
A COMMITMENT TO CONSTITUENT SERVICE
Scott believes that public service is a public trust, and will work for you! Scott supports televising Council meetings, holding Council meetings in locations around Lexington County, and instituting a "Council to the Curb" program where he will regularly attend local homeowners, neighborhood and civic association meetings to report on Council activities. Scott will report to you through all social media, including a dedicated Facebook page and website with Council news and issues where citizens can voice their opinions and positions on important issues.
