Scott is a Minnesota native growing up on the Iron Range of northern Minnesota with his three siblings. His mother was a full-time homemaker and his father drove the snowplow and firetruck for the County and kept the roads safe for his neighbors. He has been an Eagan home and business owner since 1996. Working hard, self-reliance, and taking care of others has been a cornerstone belief.
He has a B.S. degree in Management and Human Resources from Cardinal Stritch University and an A.S. degree in Aviation -- Professional Pilot. Scott is an FAA national award winning Flight Instructor and teaches new and experienced pilots across the nation about planning, risk management, and flight safety. Since 1988 he has been a financial adviser to individuals and business owners on insurance, investments, employee benefits and retirement savings programs. This background in planning, forethought, and safety is greatly needed today in politics when it comes to budgeting for current spending and visioning future needs within our financial means.
Scott is a lifelong community service volunteer and outdoorsman. He works with teenagers within the USAF Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol as a leadership mentor and flight instructor. He is active year round outdoors as a hiker, skier, fisherman and gardener.
He feels that our elected leaders in all parties have forgotten why they went into public service. Many have been corrupted by the power and money they control. Most are beholding to their party line and are unwilling (or afraid) to vote for what is best for the people, especially when that is not what the party establishment which paid for their election wants. That stops now.
If you believe in small, purposeful, limited government that represents the citizens needs first and one that does not continually grow for no higher purpose nor aginst citizen wishes, and one that will not waste your hard earned tax dollars -- vote for Scott D. Johnson, Dakota County Commissioner
