My name is Scott Higgins. I am a candidate for a seat on the Cornelius Town Commission.
So why run?" I am running for My NEIGHBORS and Your NEIGHBORS" We want to preserve the quality of life that we presently enjoy. We want our neighborhoods to be safe and accessible. We want efficient travel choices to connect us with other neighborhoods and the key places our family wants to go!
I want to make sure the town retains its “small town feel” and a place YOU want to live, work, and play.

I met Scott several years ago when we teamed up to volunteer for Second Harvest. I learned quickly that he has a great deal of life experience in supporting and mentoring others. He is passionate about volunteering to help out in the community and loves bike riding. His work on the Cornelius Parks and Recreation Commission was stellar. He worked tirelessly to improve the hiking/biking trails by developing the Emerald Necklace for the town. I feel fortunate to have gained a friend who is such an active advocate for all of us in Cornelius
