ON THE ISSUES

WHAT BRIAN SCOTT HAS TO SAY

PROTECTING OUR BORDERS
We are a nation of laws and defined borders. Unfortunately, our current president doesn’t believe in strong security on our southern border. I support Governor DeSantis’ efforts to stop illegal immigration and I will ensure that our local law enforcement can always work with Federal law enforcement to keep our borders secure and remove illegal immigrants from our county.
KEEPING ELECTION INTEGRITY
One person, one vote. This is a founding principle of our Republic that must be protected. Pinellas County deserves elections that are safe, secure, and transparent. I'll work with our Supervisor of Elections to make sure there is faith in our electoral process by requiring ID to vote, limiting the use of drop boxes, and investing in increased security measures at the ballot box.
SUPPORTING LAW ENFORCEMENT
Our law enforcement officers have a tough, often thankless job. I will always stand up and fight on behalf of law enforcement officers anywhere to ensure safety and security are a top priority. This means ardently fighting all radical efforts to “defund” our police and making sure our county employs tough prosecutors who keep dangerous criminals off the streets.
IMPROVING TRANSPORTATION
As a transportation expert, I know how important robust and reliable infrastructure is to businesses and individuals alike. One of my top priorities on the County Commission will be to introduce transportation policy that keeps pedestrians, and cyclists safe, while increasing road capacity, and maintaining existing roadways. In addition to streamlining the bureaucratic process that too often prevents us from offering innovative solutions, we also need transit solutions that emphasize maximizing the number of passengers carried and cars removed from the road mitigating congestion and air pollution.
FIGHTING AGAINST TAX INCREASES
I am prepared to fight against unnecessary and burdensome taxes that will hurt families, stagnate businesses, and devastate our economy. We need effective tax cuts and reasonable millage rates that put more money in your pocket! The size of our government’s budget shouldn’t grow just because our properties increase in value.  Our millage rates should be adjusted down to account for this and limit the size of our county budget.
PRESERVING OUR WATER
In Pinellas County, the health of our water is vital to our economy and way of life. I am focused on revitalizing and preserving our waterways, including taking proactive measures to prevent red tide and expanding more county oversight to address sewage overflow and general maintenance of all local governments.

HONORING OUR VETERANS

Our Veterans bravely served our country for years, and it’s up to us to give them the support and respect they deserve when returning to civilian life. On the County Commission, I will proudly serve as a voice for our Veterans and the entire Military community.

CONTROLLING THE SIZE OF GOVERNMENT

“Like so many other Pinellas County residents, I believe less government in our lives is a good thing. As a small-government conservative, I’ll work to give our residents and businesses as much individual freedom as possible to make positive decisions that impact our community. Our County Commission should live within its means and keep its nose out of issues that are frankly none of the government’s business!”
