Leading by Example

There is a difference between people who tell others what to do, and people who lead by example. If you take time to read what Scott’s endorsers say about him, you’ll quickly realize that he is a true leader who sets an example by walking the talk, and not just being visible during a political campaign.

 

Here are a few examples:

After Scott was elected to City Council in 2016, he immediately immersed himself in learning about the city government. He continued to be ultra-approachable to the community (residents and businesses) and he was, as always, transparent. Anyone following him in social media knows that he’s willing to help make connections, get answers, and solve problems for his community. He is, by far, the most tagged Roseville councilmember on NextDoor and Facebook because he responds to questions.

Over a decade ago, Downtown Roseville was blighted and failing. Scott stepped into the gap and joined others by serving on numerous advisory commissions and committees. He spent a significant amount of personal time in many different aspects of downtown revitalization. He privately coached several struggling businesses without charging them. He lead the merchants association for nine years and was an early catalyst in helping the property owners form a business improvement district (Downtown Roseville Partnership). Today, the downtown is not only a fantastic destination for our community, but businesses are thriving and it’s bringing jobs and revenue back to the community.

There is a homeless problem in Placer County. We have three times the national average of chronic homelessness. It’s costing the county nearly $45,000 per year per homeless person. Scott immersed himself into the facts and learned about models that work across the nation. He was appointed to the Placer County Homeless Advisory board and not only shared a moving concern for these struggling souls, he helped form a nonprofit organization that will use the best-proven models to eventually help end homelessness in our county and help restore many of these lives back into functioning members of our community. In May 2016, the Placer County Board of Supervisors voted to provide site access to land that can house this amazing solution that can save a significant amount of cost to the county and be a catalyst to solving a problem that can be solved. The process is ongoing.

Even though the Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (RCONA) was functioning, Roseville only had four neighborhood associations in 2011. Scott’s own neighborhood didn’t have an active association so near the end of 2012 he rallied neighbors together and started one. Today there are nineteen neighborhood associations and more coming on board. Scott was elected to the RCONA Executive Board and he stepped up to organize the first major training conference for all of our neighborhood associations. It was a huge success. When he moved to the Westpark Neighborhood, the board was falling apart, and the neighborhood almost went inactive. Scott stepped up as a volunteer and was elected as the NA’s president.

These are just a few of the examples where Scott walks the talk and demonstrates Leading by Example. This same willingness to step up and serve when there is a need, has allowed him to provide leadership and innovation as a school board chairman, a college business professor, a high school sports coach, a guest lecturer in classrooms, a presenter/speaker before tens of thousands of people, a published author, and more. And he knows how to prepare others for leadership so they can successfully step into his shoes as he transitions to other needs.
