GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Grand Junction native and businessman Ray Scott has officially announced his run for the State House District 54 seat in 2010.
Scott says he’ll speak for the small business community in a state he calls over-run by unions and Gov. Bill Ritter's tax-and-fee anti-business policies.
Scott had been considering a run against Congressman John Salazar in 2010. He's been on a listening tour, wanting to get a feel for voter needs and concerns before officially announcing a decision.
He says he can better help the people of Western Colorado from the Colorado House of Representatives and has set his sights on the District 54 seat currently held by Rep. Steve King. King is vacating the seat.
He says he wants to bring jobs back to Western Colorado he says the Democrat-controlled legislature have helped drive away.
Scott owns Gas Products Corporation, Coolwater Homes and Skyline Warehouse in Grand Junction. For more information on Scott, click the link below.
