4.jpgIn 2006, Jon Scott ran for United States Congress in Rhode Island’s First District based upon a deeply held belief that everyone in this country, regardless of their situation, deserves a voice in our government. 

Jon was born and raised in Providence. He graduated from Moses Brown School, where he was a four sport athlete and was involved in Close-Up (a governmental exploration program that brings high school students to Washington, D.C. each year).  He went on to study at the University of Rhode Island, where he sat on the Student Senate, which he eventually chaired, and served as the Student Representative on a number of State Boards. At about the same time he began his second adventure in the nation’s capitol, as a lobbyist for “Students Advocating Financial Aid”. 

Jon took a break from politics – he raced sailboats for five years and then took a job as a counselor for a Providence based D.C.Y.F. contracted group home provider. His experience there was eye-opening and further developed his commitment to helping those who have fallen through the nation’s safety net. He worked with that organization for twelve years and received a first hand education in both the successes and failures of our social services programs. 

Jon, who is 39, currently lives in Providence with his adopted son, Chris. In addition to his other work he has coached football, lacrosse, wrestling, and sailing for twenty years. He sits on a number of boards including Furball Farms (a non-profit animal rescue organization) and the Moses Brown Alumni Association.

    Hello, Jon!

    Just a quick note to tell you the TX GOP adopted my resolution at our State Convention, calling for immediate conversion of Social Security and Medicare to private accounts. It’s based on an innovative solution that gives us a real chance to drive a great victory in November for Freedom, Capitalism and Limited Government!

    Our TX members on the Platform Committee will be working to get this adopted in Minneapolis. This idea easily overcomes the skepticism people have attached to “privatization” and I thought I’d ask you to get this information into the hands of your own state members on the Platform Committee so they can prepare ahead and build support.

    Here’s the URL to the “executive summary” presentation which is already submitted to the online platform so the Platform Committee can review it:

    And here’s the URL to the thorough presentation with full details which is posted online at:

    I am at your service to explore these possibilities, and thank you for your attention.

    Sincerely,
