Candidate in race for State Assembly District 73
I was born into a working-class family in a small coal-mining town. My father began working in the mines of West Virginia at the age of eight. As a young man, he was a grassroots organizer in the United Mine Workers. From him, I learned the importance of collective action and of bringing a voice to the voiceless. My mother raised nine children in a modest home. From her, I learned the importance of diligence and perseverance in the face of struggle.
Like my father, I have participated in political advocacy, such as working to defeat The Briggs Initiative, Proposition 8 (the anti-gay ‘California Marriage Protection Act’) and fought to increase funding for HIV/AIDS prevention. I am also a passionate supporter of full and equal rights for all Americans, particularly worker’s and women’s rights.
I’ve called Orange County home for sixteen years with my husband Robert. https://www.scottfor73rd.com/about
