1992
Current term ends

Political party Democrat
Profession Consultant
Website Delegate Jim Scott
Jim Scott is a Democratic member of the Virginia House of Delegates, representing District 53 since 1992.

He won re-election in 2009, defeating a feisty Republican challenger Christopher Merola in the general election.[1]

Christopher Merola is the son on Italian immigrants, whose lives were saved by the US Army during WW II. He is a new media consultant that has worked for two Republican Members of Congress.

Scott currently works as a consultant on community affairs for Inova Health System. He has previously served on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and Northern Virginia Planning District Commission.[2]

Issue positions

For all of 2009, and currently in 2010, the "Issues" and "Community Service" sections of Scott's official website have been blank. Scott's Republican challenger, Christopher Merola, took issue with Scott's apathetic approach to updating his own web site pages. There is a label on the pages that claims they are "under construction."

Committee membership

2010-2012 committees:

  • HB 2380 Wireless telecommunications devices; prohibits use of text messaging while driving certain vehicles.
  • HB 2382 Governor's Advisory Board for National and Community Service; established.
  • HB 2668 Fair Housing Law; unlawful discrimination when based on sexual orientation.[3]
