Leadership / Experience / Commitment
I strongly believe that it is important to give back to our community by spending time in service to the public. That is why I’m running for County Commission.
Throughout my career, and for more than a decade as the President and CEO of a nationally recognized non-profit, I have worked tirelessly to bring resources and people together to make our country’s aviation system safer and more secure. I will do the same thing as your representative on the County Commission; bring resources and people together to make Knox County the best it can be.
I hope you will take the time to review my experience and ideas. More importantly, I hope you will make your voice heard. Early voting begins February 12th and the Primary election is March 3rd. I would be honored to have your support.
My family and I moved to Knoxville in 2007 when I was hired as Vice President of National Safe Skies Alliance, Inc. We have two daughters, Whitney and Mickenzie, and son-in-law, Garrett. The star of the family is 3-year old granddaughter, Rhyan.

Why Scott is the best qualified candidate.
My 34 years of experience in the government, corporate and non-profit sectors will provide a basis for identifying practical solutions for making progress in our community around the issues of economic development, education and public safety; doing so with the smallest government footprint possible.
People want efficient and effective government. Making smart decisions about our economy, working with the School Board to provide for the needs of students and making sure that we focus on our citizens’ personal safety and quality of life is extremely important.
Knox County must continue to focus on recruiting new businesses and retaining existing ones. Our recruitment and retention efforts must be collaborative, targeted, and data-and-research driven. I will work with the Chamber of Commerce, business leaders and members of the community to recognize needs and identify industry sectors that we should target, matching them with our unique existing assets.
I won’t be simply content with economic progress; I want to accelerate it.
Knox County’s 4th District is home to 8 schools, varying in size and each with a diverse student population. West High School, Bearden Elementary, Blue Grass Elementary, Northshore Elementary, Pond Gap Elementary, Rocky Hill Elementary, Sequoyah Elementary and West Hills Elementary form the list. I am solidly committed doing everything possible to support the education of our children. Working closely with the Knox County School Board and specifically with the School Board’s elected representative in the 4th District will be key in identifying and promoting ways that we can actively engage in our children’s success.
Maintaining a safe and friendly environment where families and businesses can flourish is incredibly important and working hand-in-hand with public safety personnel is essential. The 4th District is unique in that both the City of Knoxville and the Knox County share responsibility for keeping our families and property safe. With a background in law enforcement and public safety, I will maintain a sharp look out for issues and trends which suggest that additional focus should be added to areas of concern.
empathetic + compassionate
Listening to the Community
I’ll always be concerned about the risk of county government simply going about its business without listening to the voice of its constituents. Certainly, there will be major challenges that confront us, but I firmly believe that if we listen intently to the citizens of Knox County and to each other, we can thrive as a community.
