"I come from a family that is proud to serve others. My father is a preacher, and my two brothers were led into the ministry as well. My service took a different form. I was led into healthcare to serve others during their time of need. Now, I serve Scioto County by fighting for jobs, growing our economy, supporting our law enforcement, expanding recreational opportunities for families, building on our tourism industry, assisting small business and non-profits, and protecting our children all while maintaining conservative principles."

 LIST OF ISSUES

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Scottie is a strong supporter for increasing funding and access in our educational system. Decisions that impact our children should be in the hands of the local community and parents. Who knows better the barriers our children face then the people that are with them day in and day out. While Scottie supports access to charter schools and school choice, he also believes that oversight needs to be in place to make sure that these institutions are putting the emphasis on educating our children and not on generating profits.

As a first generation college student, Scottie is also painfully aware of the rising costs of a college education and the long term impact student loans have on families. That's why he supports more access to college credits in high school, and also a renewed effort to promote and outfit our technical schools to train for the jobs of tomorrow.

Education is the great equalizer, and provides a path out of poverty. We need to treat it as an investment in our future.

CONSERVATIVE FISCAL DECISIONS with ROI

Scottie has a history of fighting to keeping jobs and generating investments into our community. In the healthcare community he was an integral part of the team to provide a business plan to a corporate nursing home company to invest millions of dollars in expanded rehabilitation services. He also fought to ensure this investment was built with local union workers. As a nursing home administrator he fought to turn around a struggling nursing home, preventing it from state closure. His efforts and leadership saved over 100 jobs in Wheelersburg, Oh. While with the State he introduced a proposal to move good paying state jobs to Portsmouth. This expansion brought over half a million dollars in great pay and state benefits.

Scottie understands that attracting jobs and investments is the biggest challenge we face, and he has the experience needed to generate that investment activity, create new jobs and keep jobs in our often ignored part of the state.

As Scioto County Commissioner, Scottie has and will continue to work with business leaders, economic development experts, and the state legislator to bring investment, opportunities, and high paying jobs back to Scioto County.
