Scott Floyd

Hello, I’m Scott Floyd running for  County Commissioner District 7 seat here in Columbus County.   I’m born and raised here in Columbus County and I have lived in the Pleasant Plains community my entire life. 
 I’m married for almost 29 years to my wife Lori who is employed with Whiteville City Schools. We have one daughter Ashlin who graduated from UNCW and currently sponsored by New Hanover county in their Fire and Ems program.  I’m retired from the North Carolina Highway Patrol and currently employed by the Columbus County Sheriffs Office as a bailiff.  I appreciate all the help and support I can get!

Thank you!
