About Scott



   Scott Fernandez was born and raised in Portland’s Rose City Park neighborhood where he attended Rose City Park grade school and Madison High School.  Scott went on to earn a degree in biology and graduate degree in drinking water microbiology. 

  After years of work in the field of public health, Scott left to assist in his father’s  marketing business.  He ran the business for many years after his father’s passing and has scaled back his work to better serve the community in drinking water and other important issues.

  Scott has been a member of the Portland Utility Review Board, City of Portland Water Quality Advisory Committee. He has been involved with animal recoveries identified in the Endangered Species Act for over 30 years.

  Scott has always been an avid animal lover. He spent many summers volunteering in animal clinics including Dove Lewis in Portland, private clinics in Albquerque and Walla Walla, as well as an emergency clinic in Albuquerque. Scott encourages spay and neutering, in addition to a policy of no-euthanizing in animal shelters. Shelters should focus on placing animals in foster homes as needed, and finding qualified permanent homes for all animals.

  An avid lover of the outdoors, Scott is a runner and cyclist who participates in races such as the yearly Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and biking along Portland’s many bike paths and neighborhoods such as the Springwater and I-205.










             Scott supports equal rights for all regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation.
