Scott's Record

California is facing some serious challenges today. The next two to four years will shape the direction of the Golden State for decades to come. We need a leader whose record and ideas for the future will insure that our state progresses toward a better tomorrow.  Scott’s record shows that he is the right choice to represent the 38th Assembly District. 

Record as a COC Board Trustee

Scott was appointed to the Santa Clarita College District Board of Trustees on August 23, 2006.  He was re-elected in November 2007 and November 2011.

College of the Canyons is a public two-year community college located in the Santa Clarita Valley. It is one of the fastest growing community colleges in America. It has been recognized as one of the finest educational institutions in California. As only one member of COC’s Board of Trustees, Scott cannot assume full responsibility for its glowing statewide reputation. His board record displays his commitment to a conservative philosophy. His actions on the board have served the College of the Canyons well. 

While on the College Board Scott has:

  • Opposed $400,000 in cost-of-living increases to college administrators
    Opposed Governor Jerry Brown’s tax extension proposal
    Protected Proposition 13 by opposing a resolution advocating lowering the voter approval threshold for bonds.

Scott’s record also includes:

  • Supporting enhanced Career Technical Education (CTE) opportunities
  • Supporting partnering with the business community including the SCV Economic Development Corp.
  • Supporting access to all through the University Center, the Valencia and Canyon Country campuses and on-line education.
  • Supporting the establishment of the K-12 Arts Education Initiative.
  • Supporting new ethical standards for Boards of Trustees, administrators and faculty.
  • Supporting resolutions in support of legislation to address the CEMEX mega-mine issue.

Scott believes that investment in education is the key to California’s future. However, these dollars need to be spent effectively and efficiently.

Record as Assembly Chief of Staff

While serving as Chief of Staff, his Members accomplished the following:

  • Passed AB 290, landmark legislation that lifted the statute of limitations for sexual crimes against children
  • Authored and passed AB 2815, which compels courts to release the HIV test results of sexual offenders to the victims of their crimes.
  • Authored and passed AB 2782 which denied convicted felons or parolees the right to legally change their names without the permission of the Department of corrections.
  • Co-Authored the “Three Strikes and you’re out law”

Scott Wilk’s record as a College Board Trustee and an Assembly Chief of Staff provides voters with a glimpse into his philosophy: educational access to all; fiscal responsibility; a willingness to collaborate with others; and a commitment to equipping the individual. Winston Churchill once said:  “The farther back you look, the farther ahead you see.”  Scott Wilk’s successful record shows us that he will serve us well in the Assembly.
