David Scott's Campaign Moving

Full Speed to Washington

Atlanta, GA - (February 11, 2002) - Due to reapportionment, Georgia gains two additional Congressional seats in 2002.  One of the candidates to hold the new seat in U. S. Congress representing District 13 is Democrat David Scott.

Scott was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 1974. After serving in the Georgia House, he was then elected to the Georgia State Senate in 1982, where he continues to serve. He has served in the Georgia Legislature for the past 25 years.

Senator Scott is chairman of the powerful Rules Committee. The Rules Committee determines which bills get to the Senate floor for debate. Senator Scott also serves on the Appropriations, Education, Reapportionment, and Banking and Finance Committees in the Senate.

Congressional Candidate

David Scott

Addressing an alumni chapter of his Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Scott stated, "I fought hard to put in place a state law that requires the observance of a moment of silence for reflection and prayer at the start of each school day in all of Georgia's public schools.  I fought hard for the law requiring background checks before gun purchases, and making it a felony for anyone to knowingly sells or provides a firearm to a minor."

Scott gives credit to his legislation for the decline in teen pregnancies in the state.  He authored legislation mandating the teaching of Sex Education and AIDS prevention in Georgia's public schools.

Scott is not just a politician, he has been a successful business leader as well.  "I have been fortunate enough to win awards for my work as Chief Executive Officer of Dayn-Mark Advertising Company. I have been on the front line in both politics and business."  Scott has won four Emmy awards for the PBS production entitled "Langston!" a tribute to the poetry of Langston Hughes and he has won an award from the NAACP as well.

Once the new seat was created, there was overwhelming push in the community for Scott to run.  "I have no choice.  I have to serve the communities that comprise this new district."
