About Scott Wilk
Scott Wilk is a longtime resident of the Santa Clarita Valley. He is a husband, father, a small business owner and his life’s work has been serving the public in both behind the scenes capacities and as an elected official. Scott has worked as the Chief of Staff for California Assembly Members Tom McClintock and Paula Boland as well as the District Director for Representative Howard P. “Buck” McKeon. He was recently re-elected to a second term on the Santa Clarita Community College Board of Trustees after being appointed in 2006 and elected in 2007.
Scott’s public affairs work has greatly improved the quality of life in the Santa Clarita Valley. Some of his more recent projects included the development of “The Patio’s” at Westfield Town Center, the establishment of the City of Santa Clarita’s Open Space District, and the approval of Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital’s 15-Year Master Plan. Throughout his real-life private and public sector experiences, Scott has come to realize that freedom and opportunity are the keys to prosperity.
As chief of staff to Assemblyman Tom McClintock, Scott was the architect of AB 62, the Valley Secession Bill. This legislation removed the veto power the Los Angeles City Council had over any citizens petition to secede from the City of Los Angeles.
As chief of staff to Assemblywoman Paula Boland , Scott drafted and managed the legislative strategy for passing AB 109, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Breakup Bill. This legislation removed the LAUSD School Board’s veto power over a citizen’s petition to restructure the district.
Although the San Fernando Valley has yet to secede from the City of Los Angeles or the Los Angeles Unified School District has yet to be dismantled, both efforts pushed these government agencies to seek reforms to better address their citizens’ concerns.
The Signal Newspaper has honored Scott multiple times as one of the 51 most influential people in Santa Clarita. Scott attended California State University Bakersfield and has a B.A. in Political Science. Scott also serves on the Board of Directors of the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital Foundation and on the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Legislative Committee. He resides in Santa Clarita with his wife, Vanessa, and they have two adult children - Scott, Jr. and Alison
