“Government is like kudzu in the South or blackberries in Washington: it’s naturally invasive, and needs to be cut back from time to time.” – Elizabeth Scott
Elizabeth Scott served in the WA State Legislature, representing over 137,000 people in Skagit, Snohomish, and King Counties (39th LD) in the WA House of Representatives for two full terms from January 2013-January 2017. A strong defender of individual liberty, property, privacy, and Second Amendment rights, Elizabeth Scott has the legislative voting record to prove she works to rein in government spending and decrease debt while focusing on our State Constitutional priorities of education, public safety, and caring for the most vulnerable.
Elizabeth has worked in both the public and the private sectors, as a consultant and as a teacher of English as a Second Language for ten years in China, the United Arab Emirates, Illinois, and four Washington State Community Colleges.
Growing up on a fourth-generation farm, Elizabeth farmed 80 acres of it herself in high school with two of her younger siblings and learned the value of hard work, family, faith, and community. She moved to Seattle at age 18 to attend Seattle Pacific University (B.A. Linguistics) and lived in King County for five years before heading overseas to teach English to college and university students in The People’s Republic of China for two years, where she learned to appreciate our Constitutionally-protected liberty, and then in the United Arab Emirates for three years. Elizabeth attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale (M.A. Teaching English as a Foreign Language). In the year 2000, Scott moved back to Snohomish County to teach English to immigrants and international students at four community colleges: Edmonds, North Seattle, Lake Washington Tech, and Cascadia in Bothell (Founding Faculty). Elizabeth taught English as a Second Language for over ten years and is now tutoring international students.
