Elizabeth Scott Announces Run for Congress in 1st District
In my 39 years as a political participant (not just spectator) I have seen a LOT of candidates on the Republican side. In 2010 I attended a small event introducing the candidacy of Elizabeth Scott for the State Legislature. She spoke and answered questions… and brought down the house intellectually. As I expressed at that time, I have, in all those years, encountered a tiny minority as qualified at any level for public office as Elizabeth Scott. In times as crucial as ours we need this woman in Congress. Electing her from the State of Washington will be an event of national significance, mark my words.
The following is from her press release:
Monroe, WA – August 5, 2015 Elizabeth Scott has announced her candidacy for U.S. House of Representatives, in Washington State’s 1st Congressional District, located in Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish, and King Counties. The election will be in November 2016.
“According to a recent poll, two-thirds of voters in our district think Congress is on the wrong track. Many are deeply concerned about the federal government’s out-of-control spending, debt, taxes, and over-regulation,” said Representative Scott. “We need to rein it in, keep our promises to seniors and military veterans, and protect individual rights.”
Elizabeth Scott is currently serving her second term in the State Legislature as State Representative for the 39th Legislative District, in Skagit, Snohomish, and King Counties. She serves on the Commerce and Gaming, and Early Learning and Human Services Committees and will fulfill her term In the State House. Formerly a college English teacher in China, the United Arab Emirates, and four Seattle-area community colleges, Scott, 49, lives in Monroe with her husband Paul and their children.

Scott will be as rare in Washington DC as she is in Olympia. This is a real blow you can strike to save our economy, to reverse the destructive turn of American government, to save our Republic. We have more than a year to get it done, too. Send money or volunteer for her campaign.
Elizabeth Scott is a game-changer.
