Since being elected to the United States Senate, Scott Brown has kept true to his word and represented Massachusetts as an independent voter and thinker. He has held firm to his principles of lower taxes and less government spending, and has advocated for strong national security policies to keep our country safe from terrorism.
Brown has made job creation his top legislative priority, and has worked on a series of bills targeted at boosting specific sectors in the Bay State economy, including the medical device industry, our innovative start-up companies and our hard-working fishermen, among many others.
Brown believes there is no more important task right now than fostering an environment that allows our nation’s small businesses to create jobs and put people back to work. This starts by unleashing the ingenuity of our state’s innovators and entrepreneurs.
At a time when bitter partisanship too often leaves Washington D.C. gridlocked, Brown has not hesitated to reach across the aisle and work with members of any political party on commonsense policies that will get our economy moving.
Above all else, Senator Brown believes that we are Americans first, and the challenges we face as a country right now require us to work together – not against each other.
For 33 years, Senator Brown has served in the Army National Guard, and he currently holds the rank of Colonel in the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps. In the summer of 2011, Brown completed his annual training requirements for the National Guard in Afghanistan.
A graduate of Wakefield High School, Tufts University, and Boston College Law School, Scott Brown lives in Wrentham with his wife Gail, a reporter at WJLA-DC. They have two daughters: Ayla, who is currently pursuing a country music career in Nashville, and Arianna, who graduated with honors from Syracuse University in May.
