As I predicted yesterday, from one embarrassment to another.  Scott has done NOTHING for his district.  Nada.  So let’s reward him with a promotion.

I have talked with Scott on three or four occasions, usually at school functions and involving children’s education here in Mesa County.  He always listened to all points of view and gave his view points.  I found him to be thoughtful and reasonable.  Since Ralph D’andrea stated that Scott has done nothing for his district I looked up and copied the committee’s Scott is on and bills he has sponsored.  As far I know his has always been present and on the job for his district in Denver.

“Present and on the job” is a lot different than actually getting something done.  Give him an award for attendance.

Scott has sponsored or co-sponsored over 140 bills in the last session.  So Ralph, where is your proof that Scott has done NOTHING for his district??

Cosponsoring 140 bills simply means putting your name on them after they pass.  Of the 7 bills he was House prime sponsor of, four of them died in committee.  Of the ones that passed, I’m sure the people of Mesa County are thrilled about “PUC Oversight Of Rail Fixed Guideway System”,“Highway Vehicle Weight Limits”, and the ever popular “Petroleum Storage Tank Redevelopment Fund.”  Scott is an insignificant back-bencher.

Ray Scott will be a great State Senator.  He gets things done, cares about the education of our children and is a dedication public servant.
