Peggy S. Scott (born December 1961) is a Minnesota politician and member of the Minnesota House of Representatives. A member of the Republican Party of Minnesota, she represents District 35B, which includes portions of Anoka County in the northern Twin Cities metropolitan area. She is also a small business owner and realtor.[1]

Early life, education, and career[edit]

Scott graduated from Lowthian College, now called the Art Institutes International, in Minneapolis, in 1983, majoring in fashion merchandising. In addition to owning and operating a real estate investment company with her husband, she has been active in her community, serving on the Andover Parks and Recreation Commission, and coaching youth soccer and basketball. She is involved with the women's and youth ministry programs at her church and has served as an after-school care coordinator at the congregation's school.[2][3]

Minnesota House of Representatives[edit]

Scott was first elected in 2008, running after three-term Rep. Chris DeLaForest opted not to seek re-election. She was re-elected in 2010 and 2012.[4]

Gay Rights[edit]

Scott has told reporters that her “heart broke” because the state House voted to allow same-sex marriage in the state of Minnesota.[5]
