Mansfield City Council President Phil Scott has announced his bid for Richland County Commissioner.

The Democrat, will run for commissioner in the November election. Scott's main focus is improving the economy and bringing jobs back to the area.

"As President of Mansfield City Council and former Richland County Clerk of Courts, I have the experience necessary to help put our region back to work," Scott said. "For too long, Richland County residents have struggled with unemployment worse than that facing the rest of the state. As commissioner, I'll leave politics at the door and work with anyone willing to put Richland County jobs and families first."

Scott was first elected as Richland County Clerk of Court in 1988, and was re-elected in 1992, 1996 and 2000. He was elected to as Mansfield City Council President in 2007 and was re-elected in 2011.

A life-long Richland County resident and 1973 graduate of Shelby High School, Scott's two children were also educated in the county through Mansfield City Schools. In addition to his deep ties to the community, Scott is a member of Mansfield First United Methodist Church, Mansfield Masonic Temple and Baku Gratto.

"I hope to continue to earn our community's trust, and as a Commissioner I look forward to helping improve our economy and increasing the quality of life for everyone in Richland County," Scott said.
