Congressman Tipton is a lifelong resident of Colorado's 3rd Congressional District and is fighting hard every day in Washington to put Coloradans back to work.
After 30 successful years in business, Mesa Verde Indian Pottery has developed a reputation worldwide for their craftsmanship and integrity.
Scott's experience and background is as a job creator, managing 22 employees at Mesa Verde's peak. Through his career as a small businessman, Scott has learned first hand that government does not create jobs, people do, and he takes this experience and philosophy with him to Congress. This real-world knowledge of the obstacles and risks taken on by our Country's entrepreneurs is an experience that is too often lacking in Washington, D.C.
Scott and Jean have two daughters. Liesl, married to Chris and Elizabeth married to Jace. They recently welcomed their second grandchild.
Scott Tipton previously served in the State house where he championed pro-small business legislation and Jessica's Law, legislation to protect our children from the worst criminal offenders by mandating harsher penalties for child sex-offenders and allowing law enforcement to collect DNA evidence from suspects through Jessica’s Law and Katie’s Law.
Congressman Tipton currently serves on the House Committee on Natural Resources and the House Committee on Financial Services, where he has championed legislation to help get Coloradans back to work.
