Connie Scott represents the 34th District of Texas. In 2010, Connie Scott was elected to her first session in the Texas House of Representatives serving District 34, which includes a segment of Corpus Christi, as well as Agua Dulce, Banquete, Bishop, Driscoll, Petronilla, and Robstown.
Connie was born on November 10, 1961. A native Texan, she worked her way through Luling High School, graduating in 1980. She knows what it means to work hard, as a single mother of two for many years, and a longtime co-owner of a pipeline construction business. Connie has earned a reputation of a no-nonsense, natural leader.
In 1998, Connie was named executive director of Bay Area Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse, a group that has received local, statewide and national notice for its leading role in helping to reduce frivolous lawsuits. Her efforts associated with this organization led to better healthcare options and doctor retention in Corpus Christi.
In September 2009, Nueces County Commissioners named Connie to the Regional Transportation Authority board of directors. She took measures to establish new ethics rules and to force greater accountability and transparency in the public transportation agency. In January 2010, Connie was elected Vice- Chairwoman of the board of directors. She has also served as a member of the board of the Lexington Museum and as president of the Corpus Christi State School Volunteer Services Council.
Connie is married to businessman Mike Scott, who serves as a Port of Corpus Christi commissioner. Together, the Scotts have four children and five grandchildren. They are members of River Hills Baptist Church.
"I think there are so many issues that we can come together on. I think that if you sit down and talk to anyone individually, I could certainly argue the point that they are more Republican."
