First elected to Parliament in 2015, Scott is a community leader who has lived and worked in Hamilton Mountain for two decades.
In his nine years as a Hamilton City Councillor (2006-2015), Scott was a strong advocate for safer neighbourhoods with accessible sidewalks and parks, decent roads and sewers, better transit, and more affordable housing.
Scott also played a key role in helping the Challenger Baseball League find a permanent home park. And as a board member of the Concession Street BIA, he listened to small business owners’ concerns and worked with them to find solutions.
Before entering politics, Scott was a steelworker and president of his local union, where he helped save hundreds of good jobs and pensions at Stelwire during the bankruptcy and subsequent sale of Stelco Inc.
Scott has served on the United Way of Burlington & Greater Hamilton’s Board of Directors. He is also a committed supporter of Hamilton Food Share, Mountain Kidz Klub and the Neighbour to Neighbour Centre.
Scott and his wife Sherry are proud parents of three daughters and grandparents of two.
