Highlights of all the candidate responses are available in this downloadable 2015 Voter Guide. The biographical information below is provided by each candidate.

Bio: Scott moved to the urban ring within the county in 1989. By 1993, he was residing in the city of Charlottesville. Growing up in Stafford County, he was raised in a civically observant and responsible family. Throughout his life, Scott worked in both small business and large-scale stores alike. His positions have ranged from 9 to 5 assignments to scarcely active graveyard shifts. Readapting has been and is a constant in both his employment and retirement history. Scott has now lived long enough where at least one of the higher collegiate institutes he (uneventfully) attended is no longer publicly open. Lastly, he remains a devout caregiver to his long time housemate.
