You deserve a representative who will work with your best interests at heart

Emily Scott campaigning

You deserve:

A decent working wage

You should not have to work multiple jobs to make ends meet. When elected, I will work to repeal the so-called “Right to Work” laws that hold working people back.

Safe and uncongested roads

We must find ways to incorporate rail into our freight network to make our highways safer.

A strong education system:

Where children receive a broad education and are prepared for the real world when they graduate.

Broadband internet access

Common Sense gun safety laws

And a ban of Assault Style weapons because we value human life over guns.


Including mental health care and substance abuse treatment for all who need it

The Right to Choose

The government has no business in your personal decisions regarding your health care.

Clean Air and water

Vote for me and I will work for you!

I Support Human Rights

A woman’s right to choose

A worker’s right to a living wage

A child’s right to a Safe and broad education

Everyone’s right to the pursuit of happiness

I Honor Our Veterans
