Conservative Activist to Rockstar Campaign Manager with Cathy Scott

Cathy Scott Rockstar Campaign Manager

Cathy Scott’s Transition from Conservative Activist to Rockstar Campaign Manager was Rapid but Not Without Hard Work…

This week our guest is Cathy Scott. She describes herself on Twitter as a Conservative Aggie fighting for a Stronger Texas and a Joyful follower of Christ.

Frequent listeners should remember hearing Cathy mentioned in the interviews with Senator Konni Burton and Luke Macias. She worked for both of them as the Campaign Manager for Konni’s 2014 State Senate Campaign and did an absolutely incredible job through a tough year and a half on the campaign trail.

While Cathy had extensive volunteer experience on campaigns, she only held one other political job before her post as manager for Konni’s race. What she may have lacked in experience though, she made up for through her tenacity, curiosity and work ethic.
