Scott Ramsey, small business owner, Silver Spurs Riding Club member, and fourth generation Osceola County resident, has announced that he will run for Osceola County School Board, District 5, the seat currently held by Erika Booth, who is currently campaigning to be the next State Representative for District 35 after Fred Hawkins resigned to become South Florida State College’s next president.
Ramsey (45) is a lifelong resident of Osceola County, and a 4th generation cattle rancher and the owner of three successful businesses, P-R Sod Company, Ramsey Feed Company and Ramsey Cattle Company. He is a community leader with a long history of public service. Scott’s wife, Laurel, is an Osceola County educator and they are proud parents to Reyce, who is starting his 8th grade year.
“I have a vested interest in Osceola County. If elected I will fight for safe schools, less standardized testing, and a commonsense curriculum,” Ramsey states. “I am ready to work hard to build a bright future for our schools,” Ramsey continued.
When not ranching, Scott is a very active member within the community, he volunteers as a coach for Harmony Youth Football and has been a coach for St. Cloud Little League. In 2013/2014 Scott served as the Big Boss for the Silver Spurs Rodeo and is currently the Chairman of the Rodeo Committee.
