Hi, I'm Scott


My Background

I was elected Clerk of the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court in 2018, bringing over 30 years of government experience to the position.

I graduated from the United States Coast Guard Academy and earned Master’s Degrees from George Mason University and American College. In addition to 20 years of military service with the Coast Guard in a variety of leadership positions, I also served in several senior roles in the Federal Government including as an Associate Administrator with the U.S. Department of Transportation in the Senior Executive Service (SES).


My wife and I have lived in Annapolis for well over 25 years. Our two children attended Anne Arundel County Public Schools and graduated from Annapolis High School. I am a member of several community groups including the NAACP and the American Legion.

As Clerk

As Clerk, I manage one of the busiest clerk's offices in the state. I oversee  128 people processing over a quarter million documents a year, which include legal documents, deeds, business licenses, marriage licenses, and other official records of Anne Arundel County.


In addition to running the clerk's office for the county I also help set policy state-wide. I am a member of the Conference of Circuit Court Clerks, the Maryland Circuit Court Clerks' Association, and the Mid-Atlantic Association of Court Management. I serve on several Judiciary committees developing statewide policies for the Maryland Court system, including the Domestic Law Committee, two Technology Subcommittees, and the Language Access Subcommittee. At the county level, I serve on the Criminal Justice Coordinating Committee, the Domestic Violence Coordinating Council, and the Anne Arundel County Immigrant Affairs Commission.
