Alex Scott is energetic and excited for an opportunity to serve the tax payers of Ward 8. If elected, Scott would like to host bi-monthly, public forums in order to inform the people of local projects, as well as gather information from the public to ensure that their concerns are addressed. She is eager to begin working on changes she would like to see in the community, but is more interested in feedback from her constituents. Above all, Alex seeks to provide innovative and cost-effective solutions for Ward 8 while cultivating a prosperous environment for current and future generations.
Alex married her best friend, Kalynn Scott in 2016. Kalynn has worked for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation as a Civil Engineer for 5 years. The Scotts have been home owners in Ward 8 for two years and are in the process of starting a small business in the area. Aside from working full-time, starting a business, and completing their respective graduate programs at the University of Oklahoma, Alex and Kalynn enjoy spending quality time with friends, family, and their dogs. The Scotts enjoy their time volunteering in their community and looking for ways to improve their quality of life and the quality of life of those within their community.
An Oklahoma native, Alex graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a B.A. in Classical Studies and is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Public Administration with an emphasis on Non-Profit Management. Alex’s passion for politics came about when she was completing her undergraduate degree in 2015. During her time as a public school teacher, Alex became involved with the Oklahoma Education Association and was very active in the union. Scott was trained at the National Education Association's annual leadership summit to be an advocate and activist for educational policy changes, and applied her training through canvassing, conducting listening tours, and lobbying legislators. She became regularly involved with state elections and working with candidates. Alex has spent much of her time knocking on doors, speaking to tax payers one-on-one, and encouraging individuals to let their voices be heard. Scott loves to bring people together, so she enjoys organizing community events such as cookouts and debates; she hopes to bring more community engagement activities, like Art Walk and Summer Breeze to Ward 8.
