Council At-Large Division B
Honorable Scott A. Walker
Scott Walker was elected to the Jefferson Parish Council in 2019 and has put a strong focus on transparency, accessibility, public safety, the future of Jefferson Parish and economic development opportunities.
Placing a priority on the parish’s youngest learners, Councilman Walker has led the Jefferson Parish Council's early childhood education initiative — contributing nearly one million dollars over three years and securing private donations from the Jefferson Business Council and Jefferson Community Foundation to total nearly two million dollars when factoring in the state's dollar-for-dollar match.
He has also worked closely with the Sheriff’s Office to enhance public safety, recently providing funding for two speed trailers equipped with license plate reader technology and bulletproof vests for JPSO K9s.
Councilman Walker led the parishwide redistricting efforts after the 2020 Census, strongly supports ongoing efforts to modernize the parish library system and was the driving force behind $20 million in funding being dedicated to the modernization of The Shrine on Airline and The Alario Center. Councilman Walker’s office also facilitated and paid for upgrades at the Alario Center, such as new sport courts and basketball goals for the facility.
He has also provided funding to renovate a Jefferson Parish Head Start center in River Ridge and for the purchase of an ambulance to serve Lafitte, Crown Point, Barataria and Jean Lafitte.
In addition, Councilman Walker is proud to have partially funded wireless internet at parish playgrounds, helped secure additional early voting locations, launched the Parish’s first Spanish-language facebook page and organized and executed United Way relief efforts on the ground after a tornado severely damaged parts of the Westbank.
Councilman Walker has regular meetings with JEDCO representatives to discuss economic development ideas and initiatives across the parish, as well as specific development opportunities on the Westbank.
As Councilman At-Large, Scott represents the entire parish, and has focused on transparency, honesty and accessibility. If you call or email his office, you’ll hear back from someone that day.
Councilman Walker is the oldest of three children and was born and raised in Metairie. He attended St. Angela Merici, Brother Martin High School and the University of Southern Mississippi. He spent 23 years in local news before leaving the business in 2018 to open his PR firm, Scott Walker Media, and Shipley Do-Nuts on Metairie Road. He lives in Metairie with his wife of 23 years and two children.
