Katie will continue to be a voice for the LGBTQ community on the Washtenaw County Board
Katie Scott currently serves on the Board of Commissioners in Washtenaw County in Michigan. In her first term as commissioner, she was elected to Ways & Means chair and advocated for increased allocations to health and human services in her county. Katie is also the first out lesbian to be elected to the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners. She is a staunch advocate for labor, and recognizes how many collective bargaining agreements paved the way for non-discrimination clauses in municipal governments and businesses. When she’s not trying to keep the county budget in line, Katie works as a nurse in the ICU and is a mom.
Katie is running for re-election for the Board of Commissioners in Washtenaw County, Michigan. Spend a few minutes with Katie, and you will know immediately about her passion for social justice and ending systemic inequities that seem endemic in our country. Katie has a clear vision on how local politics can impact someone’s life on a very personal level, even down to issues such as food insecurity and safe housing. The COVID-19 crisis brought many of this issues to light, and Katie’s health care background helped her work with county-wide services to make sure that residents across the county had access to health care, testing, and essential services.
Katie is proud to have the endorsement from Victory Fund, and wants to encourage LGBTQ people across the world to stand up and run for office.
