My Name is Scott James and I’d Like Your Vote

Johnstown is a great community. Filled with wonderful neighborhoods and friendly people actively working to fulfill their hopes and dreams. Julie and I, both Colorado natives, moved here 18-years ago with the dream of owning a home, starting our family and becoming involved in a community we would call our home. As quaint as it may sound, God has blessed us and we are living that dream!

I’ll post another blog later today about the deeper story behind my involvement in Johnstown government, where we are today and where we can be in the future.

Johnstown is a great place, but our citizens and businesses deserve more!

  • We deserve to prosperously thrive and responsibly grow as a community.
  • We deserve improved amenities.
  • We deserve sound infrastructure.
  • We deserve the continued safety and security already provided by the noble efforts of the Johnstown Police Department, who propelled us to number eight on the list of the 20 Safest Cities in Colorado published by SafeWise.
  • We deserve improved relationships with community organizations and neighboring communities and governments.
  • We deserve to take our place at the table of regional leadership and help Northern Colorado responsibly grow and prosper as a region.
  • YOU deserve attentive and responsive leadership focused on creating the best environment for your families and businesses.

I believe I am the person with the experience and vision to help keep Johnstown moving in these positive directions.

Kind Johnstown friends, it would be my honor to serve as your Mayor. On April 5, may I have your vote?

Ways you can help…

First and Foremost – Please Vote! This is a mail ballot election. Ballots will be mailed in mid-March and are due back to the Town Clerk’s office by 5:00 p.m. on April 5, 2016. You may also vote in person on that day.

Social media love never hurts. Please share this and future posts about our campaign.

Invite me to speak at your community organization. I love sharing my passion for our community and the bright future we have ahead of us.

Campaign with me. The above-depicted sign and pamphlets are on order and should be in within a week. Can I put a sign in your front yard (limited to Johnstown friends only, please. I am on a budget.)? Would you hand out a pamphlet or two for me? I’d be very appreciative. Please contact me via email – me [at] scottkjames [dot] com – or by phone at 970-227-8386 (feel free to text that number – just kindly let me know who you are).

And there’s always the money thing. Signs, pamphlets and communicating a vision cost money. If you never envisioned yourself “in politics,” but hate the tone of political discourse in this nation (I most certainly do), then it all starts at the local level. The solutions won’t come from Washington, D.C. or even Denver; they’ll come from us in Johnstown and Milliken and in Northern Colorado. It all starts in your own backyard and it happens $20 and $30 at a time. I am honored you would even consider giving and you can do so here…

She Noticed

Credo is a statement of religious belief, such as the Apostles’ Creed. And while I do not hesitate in proclaiming Jesus as my Lord and Savior, the personal credo I adopted about a decade ago outwardly is less religious. It’s faith-based, but it is a mantra that can be claimed by the believer and non-believer alike.

Some background: I am a redneck idiot that has learned every lesson the hard way. I’ve lied, cheated, stolen, fallen, philandered, and failed. I’ve been filled with envy, pride, greed, jealousy, lust, gluttony, and fear. I’ve been arrogant, conceded, opinionated, closed-minded, boisterous and brash. In short – I’m a sinner.

Last Year’s Super Bowl Commercial that Left America Speechless

I went to the Colorado Farm Show at Greeley’s Island Grove Park today. It was like a time warp that snapped me 35-years back to high school. Stoic looking guys in seed caps and work boots – all “coming to town” to see what was new. Taking in the seminars and wandering the displays – dreaming of the day they might buy that new tractor or piece of equipment; all so they could better do their ass-busting work.

The Words Floating Around My Head…

Welcome to 2016. Of course, I have procrastinated writing this, so the message – and the salutation – comes about three weeks late. Regardless, it’s a brand new year and with it I’ll have a spate of resolutions that I will detail in these pages. Many of those resolutions will be the same ones I have made in years past. What makes me think this year will be any different when it comes to keeping those resolutions? Well, I am running out of time.

Which Wolf Are You Feeding?

I’m a pretty simple guy, but I run with a high emotional IQ. Meaning, I wear my heart on my sleeve. I’m the first to feel joy, cry, laugh, anger, forgive, etc. And we high emo-IQ types find emotion evoking events in nearly every interaction we have.
