Hello. I'm Kristine Scott
Candidate for District 2
RANCHO CUCAMONGA CITY COUNCIL
For the past 20 years, I have worked with communities, organizations and businesses throughout Southern California on projects and programs that have benefitted the region.
Almost 10 of those years have been specifically focused on improving our way of life in San Bernardino County. I have worked diligently to bring about positive outcomes in areas such as economic development, education and safety, especially in Rancho Cucamonga, where I have made my home and have been passionately committed to be a part of.
As council member, I want to ensure that progress continues, and we remain one of the best cities to live, work and play in the Inland Empire.
Getting to know me
I proudly serve as the point of contact for communities located in San Bernardino County, as a Public Affairs Manager for the Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas,) a Sempra Energy Utility. I work to educate customers and stakeholders about SoCalGas activities, programs and services, respond to customer and local media inquiries and resolve customer complaints.
In this position, I supports field operations through our work with regional and local governments on issues regarding franchises, permitting, emergency preparedness and response.
Resident safety and satisfaction are always important to me.
I am a graduate of California State University, Fullerton with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications specializing in public relations with a minor in American Studies.
Education is a lifelong process. In 2015, I completed "California Connections" a statewide, issues-based, learning leadership fellowship through the Southern California Leadership Network as well as the Inland Empire Economic Partnership Regional Leadership Academy in 2017.
I believe that learning never stops at any age. I am passionate about improving education for our youth as well as adult learners.
As President of the Rancho Cucamonga Library Foundation, I'm working to expand programs and services for our residents. In addition, I also volunteer on the Boards of the Boys and Girls Club, Promise Scholars Foundation and the San Bernardino Valley College Foundation.
Growing up in the Inland Empire, I've had the opportunity to live and work in communities through out the region. But when it came time to buy my first home, I knew there was no other place I'd rather live than beautiful Rancho Cucamonga.
My dog J.D. and I, love living here. We enjoy the many parks, trails and recreational amenities available to us. I spend my free time enjoying our local eateries, discovering new bands, attending & volunteering at Hillside Church and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
As our population increases, its important that we prepare for future growth by having well thought out plans and policies. I look forward to serving the residents of Rancho Cucamonga and will work hard to bring about programs and projects that will enhance the way of life that keeps us one of the best cities to live.
Top To Do's
As we have recently witnessed with the nearby fires in our neighboring cities, we need to assure the men and women of our Police and Fire Departments that they will have the resources and staffing to perform their jobs to the best of their abilities. A priority would be to work with our First Responders to help keep Rancho Cucamonga one of the safest cities to live in.
Parks & ProgRams
The expansion of the City parks system will benefit people of all ages. Outdoor activities are vital to the health and well being of our residents. Programs that reflect the needs of our diverse community provide opportunities for learning, physical exercise and social interaction.
With more cars on the road and increased traffic, we need to keep our streets safe to drive on and make the necessary long term improvements to allow for growth. At the same time we need to promote alternative modes of transportation. I would like to help find solutions that work best not only for our city but our region.
