About Scott Wilk

Assemblyman Scott Wilk is the only candidate born and raised in the 21st Senate District.

A local boy, Scott was born and raised in the 21st Senate District, which he now represents in the California State Senate. The district includes the Antelope, Santa Clarita and Victor valleys.

Before being elected to the Senate, Scott represented the 38th Assembly District for four years, where his focus was on job creation. He was the principal co-author of the California Film and Television Job Retention and Promotion Act. The $330 million a year tax credit has rejuvenated film and TV production in the state. He also co-authored a $420 million tax incentive that helped land a $60 billion aerospace contract expected to create 6,500 new jobs in the High Desert. Scott also worked across the aisle to craft a historic water bond that will build new storage and conveyance systems in California.

While in the Senate, Scott continues to focus on enhancing the life of ordinary Californians by growing California’s economy, improving schools and streamlining government so it works efficiently and effectively.

One in five Californians live in poverty. Bringing higher-paying jobs to the state will enable the poor to move into the middle class. Improving our schools will give all California students the tools they need to be competitive for jobs, higher education and sustainable careers. Reining in government spending and holding the bureaucracy accountable will ensure it works for – and not against – the people.

In 2014 Scott was selected by the non-partisan, non-profit State Legislative Leaders Foundation to attend the prestigious Emerging Leaders Program held at the University of Virginia. This program is geared toward new and upcoming lawmakers that show promise as future legislative leaders – Scott was the only legislator selected from California.

Scott serves as vice chair of the Senate committees on Education, and Agriculture. He is also a member of the committees on Budget; Business, Professions and Economic Development; and Veterans Affairs.

Scott and his wife, Vanessa, reside in Santa Clarita with their two spoiled dogs. They have two adult children, Alison and Scott Jr.

Conservative Values, Real Experience

Scott’s values have been formed through faith and his life experiences. These core beliefs have guided him in the State Assembly and will continue to do so representing us in the 21st Senate District:

  • Like Ronald Reagan, Scott believes in the power of the individual.
  • The private sector, not government, creates wealth.
  • The government should balance its budget just like hard working families do.
  • Government’s highest priority should be to protect our communities from criminals.
  • Scott believes in the freedom of every child to have equal opportunity in education, regardless of their race or zip code.
  • We must stand up for equal opportunity in education by giving every parent the right to choose the best school for their child.
  • Scott believes in the sanctity of life.
  • Scott believes in the 2nd Amendment.
  • Government’s limited resources should be prioritized toward public safety, education and roads.
  • Strong families are the core of our society.
  • Scott believes these values will build a better California.
