Community Engagement
Alex wishes to not only inform the community of local projects and policy changes, but also listen and act upon the feedback of her constituents. In order to get to know the residents of Ward 8, Scott plans to hold public forums and events once every 2 months, that will allow for the concerns of the public to be heard. The unifying atmosphere that surrounds events such as Art Walk, Norman Music Fest, and Jazz in June is the inspiration for having community events in Ward 8; such events help us support local businesses and promote a culture of unity.
Economic Development
The University North Park, located North of Robinson and 24th Avenue, has plans to build a new basketball complex for OU. Alex feels that the tax-payers of Ward 8 should be informed and included in these plans. If tax incentive financing strategies are to be used, they need to be implemented in a way that promotes economic growth in more than one area of Norman, and revisited to assess whether they are still necessary. 
Public Safety
Alex will advocate for city projects that target issues such as: Storm water drainage, public transportation, bike lanes, sidewalks, neighborhood road preservation, maintaining public parks, building new parks, and providing adequate lighting in residential areas. Scott wants the voices of Ward 8 to affect how the city and ODOT plan to improve the Robinson Crossing intersections, the widening of 36th Avenue, and the replacement of the Indian Hills Interchange. 
ABOUT ALEX
An Oklahoma Native, Alex Scott graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a B.A. in Classical Studies and is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Public Administration with an emphasis on Non-Profit Management. Alex's passion for politics came about when she was completing her undergradutate degree and serving in the Student Government Association at OU where she became familiar with parliamentary procedure, and the policy making process at the university. During her time teaching Latin in public school, Alex became involved  with the Oklahoma Education Association and was very active in the union. Scott was trained at the National Education Association's annual leadership summit to be an advocate and activist for educational policy changes, and applied her training through canvassing, conducting listening tours, and lobbying legislators. She became regularly involved with state elections and working with candidates. Alex has spent much of her time knocking on doors, speaking to tax payers one-on-one, encouraging them to let their voices be heard. Scott loves to bring people together, so she enjoys organizing community events such as cookouts and debates; she hopes to bring more community engagement activities, like Art Walk and Summer Breeze to Ward 8.

Alex married her best friend, Kalynn Scott, on February 29th, 2016. Kalynn has worked for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation as a Civil Engineer for 5 years and he has been involved with several projects in the Norman area during that time. The Scotts have been home owners in Ward 8 for two years and are in the process of starting a small business in the area. Aside from working full-time, starting a business, and completing their respective graduate programs at the University of Oklahoma, Alex and Kalynn enjoy spending quality time with friends, family, and their dogs. When the Scotts are not travelling the world they are volunteering in their community and looking for ways to improve their quality of life.

Alex is energetic and excited for an opportunity to serve the tax payers of Ward 8. If elected, Scott would like to host bi-monthly, public forums in order to inform the people of local projects, as well as gather information from the public to ensure that their concerns are addressed. She is eager to begin working on changes she would like to see in the community, but is more interested in feedback from her constituents. Above all, Alex seeks to provide innovative and cost-effective solutions for Ward 8 while cultivating a prosperous environment for current and future generations.
