Scott Frantz is currently serving his fifth term as a State Senator representing Connecticut’s 36th District, which includes Greenwich, and a portion of Stamford and New Canaan. Scott’s committee responsibilities include Co-Chair of the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee; Co-Chair of the Commerce Committee; and Vice-Chair of the Government Administration and Elections Committee. In addition, he serves on both the Transportation and the Legislative Management Committees. 
 
Scott brings a remarkable energy and talent to his work to help Connecticut businesses succeed, to protect jobs, to grow employment and to balance the state’s budget. He believes getting Connecticut’s fiscal house in order should be a priority for every member of state government. Scott understands that our state’s future must be built on a solid foundation of fiscal responsibility and accountability, and he applies this understanding in all his leadership positions. As minority leader in the republican caucus and as Co-Chair and Vice-Chair of his committees, Scott leads with a clear vision and unwavering determination to apply fiscal restraint. He is equally passionate about creating a more pro-growth, business friendly state that can sustain and improve the lives of every Connecticut family.
 
In addition to his dedicated focus on fiscal accountability and economic growth, Scott has been successful passing critical laws based on common sense, including the Entrepreneur Learner’s Permit, Timely Economic Development Performance Reporting, and the Spending Cap and Bonding Cap. Scott has also championed Emily’s Law, named after Emily Fedorko, which raises the minimum age to 16 for on-the-water boat towing of water skiers or tubers and requires the training of all new boaters in proper towing techniques.
 
Scott is an entrepreneur with a long, consistent history of service and commitment to the community. Following his election to the General Assembly, Scott stepped down from his five-year post as Chairman of the Connecticut Development Authority, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Bradley International Airport, and as Chairman of the Connecticut Brownfields Redevelopment Authority. He continues to serve on the business advisory boards of AI Squared, Granite Ventures, and RSR Partners.
 
Scott has served on various for-profit business boards for more than 15 years as well as serving as a board member of several nonprofit and club organizations including: Corporate Angel Network (Advisory); Connecticut Republican Finance Committee; Veteran’s Appreciation Council; Greenwich Country Day School; and Arch Street, the Greenwich Teen Center.
