Assistant Majority Leader Ray Scott

Senator Ray Scott represents Colorado Senate District 7 in Mesa County.

Senator Scott was born in Ohio and grew up in Rifle, Colorado where he graduated from Rifle High School. His father worked as a law enforcement officer in Denver and later joined the State Patrol, sparking his son’s interest in public service. 

Senator Scott worked for Conoco as a terminal manager. In 1978, after working in Colorado and New Mexico, Senator Scott returned to Grand Junction and became Operations Manager for Williams Energy. After Williams Energy, Senator Scott founded Gas Products Corporation, a company that sells high-end equipment for luxury homes and commercial applications. He also owns Skyline Sports Center in Grand Junction and Scott Land Investments which specializes in land development and custom home building. 

Senator Scott is committed to promoting faith, liberty and the values of our Founding Fathers. At the State Capitol, Senator Scott works to reduce job-killing regulations that stifle growth, oppose new taxes on Colorado’s middle class families, and fights to prioritize funding for safer roads and bridges in our state.

When not at the Capitol or managing one of his three businesses, Senator Scott enjoys fly-fishing and spending time with his family.

Thank you for your opinion however, the articles I am referring to are on the front page daily. They look to be Newsfeed articles from AP primarily. You don’t recognize it because they support your views. You and I disagree plain and simple, and that’s ok. I stand by my statement!

I did not approve of your characterization of the Daily Sentinel as fake news. This is sloppy and irresponsible talk in my opinion. We receive the Daily Sentinel at work and consider it the authoritative source for national and local news in our region. Partisan thinkers seem to object to the Sentinel’s Op-Ed page. What’s interesting is how many syndicated columnists have spoken out against Mr. Trump’s erratic behaviors and capricious relationship with the truth. I urge you to rededicate your focus to working in harmony with the press and representing all of your constituents. Colorado keeps getting bluer all the time. Thank you.

I thought your comment calling the Daily Sentinel “fake news” was inappropriate and unprofessional. I have lived in Mesa Co for 35 years and have found their reporting these past 2 years more balanced than in past years. Your comment sounded like a very partisan remark. Keep in mind you do represent all your constituents regardless of party.

Thank you Senator Scott for finally saying the truth about the Daily Sentinel here in Grand Junction I have been calling since last summer directly to the editor letting him know how myself and many of my colleagues feel about their fake news and slanderous articles against are then president-elect and now president in addition to many other heavily liberal slanted views that they call news… I have pulled all of my advertising from the paper in addition cancelled my daily subscription. If indeed they try to sue the fact is in the writing just go back to last spring when they started quoting biased fake news from AP and other leftwing media outlets and you can see how slanted and liberal their paper is you were just calling it as you see it and I along with MANY others stand with you! You are spot on! We and very proud of you
