PA GENERAL ASSEMBLY
Senator Scott Martin is a lifelong resident of Lancaster County with deep roots in the community. Before entering public service, Scott was successful in the private sector as a licensed Realtor and local landlord. Elected in 2007 as Lancaster County Commissioner, Scott never voted for a tax increase, downsized government by cutting duplicative agencies and departments, reduced debt by $40 million, and reduced costs for taxpayers through privatization and public employee benefit reform. Many of Scott’s initiatives and reforms were recognized statewide and nationally. Scott also served on the State’s Local Government Advisory Commission, the National Association of Counties (NACo) and testified on numerous topics before the United States Congress and Pennsylvania Legislature. In 2014, he was honored to be selected for and graduate from NACo’s County Leadership Institute in Washington DC. Long active in the local community, Scott and his wife Amber are the proud parents of four children, Alexia, Hayden, Alivia and Gavin.
