Gary Scott – Candidate for FL House District 42

Meet Gary Scott:

Saint Cloud resident since 1989, Saint Cloud homeowner since 2010, but more importantly a father of four, a husband, and an actively serving veteran. I joined the Army in 2007 for the challenge and education benefits. If you asked me then if I’d still be in, I would have laughed at you. One tour in Afghanistan in 2009, another in Guantanamo Bay in 2011, and most recently Kuwait in 2018. I earned my associates degree from Valencia College and completed the BS degree program from Public Administration with a minor in Health Science. I’m currently taking additional classes to perfect my craft in government. For the last 13 years I’ve been performing selfless service and a lot of these elected officials have a misunderstanding on how government works. They work for us and not the other way around.
Every time I come back from a deployment it takes me longer to get home from the airport because Osceola county approved thousands of more homes to be built but didn’t prepare the infrastructure. All their decisions are based on money and money should never drive your decisions. Money is not quality. I propose we reduce stress and improve quality of life. Education is quality of life. Childcare is quality of life. No crime is quality of life. Personal health is quality of life. Lower cost of living is quality of life. Not building homes for future residence.
My strengths are not experiences from traveling the world, nor my education, nor my struggles, nor my military background but rather the people who live in Osceola County. I’m not 1, I am 155,000. Anyone who gets on the microphone and tells you they know more than 155,000 is not who you want representing you in Tallahassee.
“A vote for me is a vote for us”
