Ray Scott is running for the University of Colorado Board of Regents to represent Congressional District 3.

Senator Scott was born in Ohio and grew up in Rifle, Colorado a small town where principles and values were instilled. Working on farms and ranches with his family were key to understanding just how important individual freedom and hard work can mold a desire to serve others.

The University of Colorado Board of Regents is a volunteer position with no annual pay. It’s been a part of Colorado’s Constitution since our state’s admission to the Union in 1876. 

Senator Scott began his work career with Conoco as a terminal manager and later with Williams Energy in Colorado and New Mexico. Senator Scott always had a desire to own his own business. With an entrepreneur’s drive and velocity, he founded several businesses in the energy sector, land development, logistics, sports, software, and construction. He built and sold companies that had extreme success on the one hand and great learning opportunities on the other.

At the State Capitol, Senator Scott worked to reduce job-killing regulations that stifle growth, oppose new taxes on Colorado’s middle-class families, and fought to prioritize funding for infrastructure projects that served the people, not politicians and special interests. He is a fierce supporter of fossil fuel development as these industries are the backbone of Mesa County and thousands of good-paying jobs all over Western Colorado. Senator Scott has been a fail-safe defender for the people of Colorado against the far-left progressive policy that hurts the very people the government is supposed to protect.  

When not at the Capitol or working with his business ventures, Senator Scott enjoys hunting, fly-fishing, and spending time on his farm with family and friends.
