Scott was a kind person with a mild manner and a keen sense of duty and political instinct. He worked hard and loved the Republican Party. I knew him for many years, but got to know him well about 5 years ago after I was elected the County Treasurer. At the time, the County was in transition and I was determined to update the financial system and keep the books and filings on track. For consistency and continuity, I kept all the records at the headquarters. There were many times when Scott held my hand through long hours of an FEC nightmare or some computer glitch that only he could fix. When I was convinced it could not get worse – Scott calmly told me otherwise and helped me sift through the world of federal, state and local fiscal accountability – and he always did it with a smile on his face.
I am grateful for Scott – for all he knew, for all he did and for all he was. May God bless you, my friend.
