A Strong Voice
After much deliberation and thoughtful consideration of what is best for Mesa County, I have decided to run for Mesa County District 1 Commissioner.
The American Dream is being attacked at the local level now more than ever. I appreciate all of you who reached out and encouraged me to consider fighting for you here at home.
When I earn your vote as your next commissioner you can rely on my experience as your legislator for eleven years. The lessons learned include infrastructure, energy development, education and thousands of issues that directly impact Mesa County and most importantly you and your family.
I heard my constituents loud and clear, they want solid leadership with no surprises, everyone knows how I will vote and where I stand. Standing up for working families is what I do, you are in charge of your American Dream, not the government.
I have made a commitment to you to go where the fight is and today that fight has been brought home. I look forward to discussions about specific policies as the campaign moves forward.
I will continue to put Mesa County first and stand up for our working families.
Senator Ray Scott is running for County Commissioner in Mesa County and currently represents Colorado SD7.
Senator Scott was born in Ohio and grew up in Rifle, Colorado a small town where principles and values were instilled. Working on farms and ranches with his family were key to understanding just how important individual freedom and hard work can mold a desire to serve others.
Senator Scott began his work career with Conoco as a terminal manager and later with Williams Energy in Colorado and New Mexico. Senator Scott always had a desire to own his own business. With an entrepreneur's drive and velocity, he founded several businesses in the energy sector, land development, logistics, sports, software, and home construction. He built and sold companies that had extreme success on the one hand and great learning opportunities on the other. These experiences helped develop a wide variety of knowledge of how government can interfere and in some cases destroy the American dream.
At the State Capitol, Senator Scott works to reduce job-killing regulations that stifle growth, oppose new taxes on Colorado’s middle-class families, and fights to prioritize funding for safer roads and bridges in our state. He is a fierce supporter of fossil fuel development as these industries are the backbone of Mesa County and thousands of good paying jobs all over Western Colorado. Senator Scott has been a fail-safe defender for the people of Colorado against the far left progressive policy that hurts the very people government is supposed to protect.
When not at the Capitol or working with his business ventures, Senator Scott enjoys hunting, fly-fishing and spending time with his family and friends.
