Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of North County San Diego (1)

What "people skills"--both from a public service standpoint and from an office management and leadership standpoint--will you bring to the City Treasurer's office if elected?
Answer from Nadine Scott:

I have been in the government sector for over 20 years and received many awards from my peers and others. I have extensive experience in the public and private sector with all types of individuals, companies and officials. I believe that everyone should be respected and be respectful at ones workplace.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe the Treasurer's Office must remain completely independent of any outside influences, including the Mayor and Council and special interests. I vow to keep partisan politics OUT of this office.
