Scott Bell


for State House: HD 47
Video coming soon...

Hi, I’m Scott Bell. My wife of 30 years and I raised our two children in West Jordan over the past 26 years. Before coming to Utah, I worked as a Kennecott mining engineer in New Mexico, Brazil, Papua New Guinea, and South Carolina. I know, understand, and appreciate diverse communities and cultures! 

From 2001 to 2011, I owned a small automobile repair franchise in Taylorsville. That experience taught me how truly difficult it is for small businesses and ordinary wage earners to get by.

I co-founded the Utah Civic Action Network – UCAN! — in 2017, and as a UCANner personally gathered over 10,000 signatures for Medical Cannabis, Medicaid Expansion, Better Boundaries, and Count My Vote.

In 2018 I ran to represent HD47 West Jordan/South Jordan/Midvale, getting 47% of the vote as a first-time, no-name candidate. Politically I’m progressive on issues like women’s rights, medical cannabis, and green energy; more moderate on issues like fiscal policy.

I believe in the aspirational ideas of Freedom, Family, Opportunity, Balance, and Change. My ideas, passion, knowledge, and life experiences will serve HD47 well in the Utah legislature.
