Chapter: Scott County

If you think there should be a way for you to have more of a say about issues here in Scott County, you're right.

Come join us and get involved. We are currently working locally on making curbside recycling available in Georgetown, and on pushing for a fairness ordinance in Scott County.

My dad was in the military and I grew up on army bases...  Both my grandfathers served in the military too."
