From 2006 to 2010, Campbell worked for House Speaker Kent Williams and other members of the General Assembly.
Campbell earned his B.S. from Cumberland University and has completed graduate coursework in public administration from Tennessee State University. His professional experience includes working as a 911 Police/Fire/EMS Dispatcher.
In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Campbell served on these committees:
Teachers' union bill
The Tennessee Tea Party emailed an alert about 20 House Republicans in March 2011 for refusing to take a strong public stand on a dominating issues: teachers’ union collective bargaining.
The Tennessee Tea Party's “action alert” encouraged Tennesseans sympathetic to their cause to pressure middle-of-the-road Republicans to get on board with conservative efforts to ban collective bargaining for public school teachers.
“I generally don’t take a firm stand on a bill until it’s completed, especially if there’s a great chance it’s going to be amended,” said Rep. Vince Dean. Dean added that the legislation had a long way to go before becoming law.
Rep. Scotty Campbell said he avoided taking a position because that’s what Gov. Bill Haslam had done.
“I was trying to follow his lead, and I think that was the commendable thing to do on this issue in particular,” said Campbell. “I didn’t campaign on it, it wasn’t part of my agenda and I think there are bigger matters facing us, like the economy, jobs, and the need to pass a balanced budget, which we of course have to do.”
Rep. Mark Pody said he was in the process of informally polling teachers in his district to see whether or not they favor union collective bargaining.
Campbell defeated Democrat Joe Mike Akard and independents Parke S. Morris and Thomas White in the general election on November 2, 2010. Campbell defeated Carl Michael Howard, Nick Collette, Sherry Greene Grubb, Timothy Hill, Richard Armstrong, III and Marvin Gurley in the August 5 primary.
