“Yadira Caraveo’s field organizers have a difficult job, because they’re going to be on the front lines explaining to voters why she continued her extreme crusade against the Colorado energy producers who fund our public schools. Caraveo arrived in Washington DC and immediately voted against the Lower Energy Costs Act. As a politician in the state legislature, she sponsored a bill that severely restricted our domestic energy development. At least she’s consistent: Yadira Caraveo would rather us get our energy from foreigners who hate us than create jobs to produce it safely here in Colorado.”- Elena Ehrlin, Campaign Manager, Coloradans for Scott James
About Scott James
Scott James is a fourth-generation Coloradan who grew up in LaSalle, the town his great grandfather and great-great-grandfather helped found. The eldest son of a single mom, Scott spent his formative years in the LaSalle Presbyterian Church, Boy Scout Troop 50, in a Valley Vikings Football jersey, and working on Weld County ranches and feedlots.
Scott dreamed of becoming an ag teacher when God interrupted his plans with a new calling. Forty years later, Scott has used his God-given talent as a communicator and public servant, becoming a well-known, award-winning radio personality whose voice has reached across Colorado. Most recently host of Scott & Sadie in the Morning on Big 97.9, James has delighted in entertaining and informing two generations of Coloradans and serving his community by volunteering tens of thousands of hours for worthy causes and helping raise over $2 million for local and national charities.
Later in life, Scott was called to public service. A former councilman and Mayor in Johnstown, Scott currently serves as a second-term Weld County Commissioner where he helped keep Weld County debt-free with no county sales tax, held the line on property taxes, returned nearly $1 billion to Weld taxpayers, and stood his ground defending our freedom against unlawful orders, mandates, and lockdowns during COVID.
Scott, his wife, Julie, and son, Jack, reside in Johnstown, Colorado. A graduate of Northeastern Junior College, Aims Community College, and Colorado State University, Scott is active at Rez Church, serves on the Bright Futures Board of Directors, and passionately endeavors to shave a stroke or two off his double-digit golf handicap.
