“Scot’s commitment to transparency and communications is the hallmark of a good public servant. His ideas for making the Assessor’s office customer centric are game changers.”

-James E Johnson Jr, Former Eagle County Commissioner

“It surprised no one when Scot was named editor of The Wood River Journal shortly after joining the staff, or when he joined with a few others to buy the paper shortly after that.

I had worked with him at a newspaper in Seattle, so when he asked me to move to Idaho to be his associate editor, I was quick to agree, largely because I knew working for Scot would be an invaluable experience.

Watching him run a newspaper, producing a top quality product each week was a pleasure.

No matter how hectic things got, Scot could always find a way to lead the staff with poise and grace. He was probably the one person who was friends with everyone on staff, and really everyone in town, as a newspaper owner needs to be.

The determination, intelligence, and willpower that he used to turn a money-losing newspaper into an award-winning and money-making business will serve him well leading a large and complex office as a public official.”

-Herb Payton, high-tech entrepreneur
