Scott Dacey currently serves as a member of the Craven County Board of Commissioners, having been elected to the board in 2010. While serving as a commissioner, he has focused his attention toward making county government more transparent to the taxpayer and is constantly working toward reducing the size of government. He has also been working to make certain eastern North Carolina's number one source of jobs - Marine Air Station Cherry Point and the Fleet Readiness Center East - remain vibrant sources of employment for years to come.
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1986 with B.A in Political Science, Scott began working in the Wisconsin State Legislature and worked on a series of political campaigns throughout Wisconsin.
In 1989, Scott accepted a political appointment from President George H.W. Bush, becoming a congressional liaison for the United States Small Business Administration in Washington, DC. His experience at the SBA allowed him to develop a successful career representing the interests of small and disadvantaged businesses, not-for-profit institutions and governments before Congress and the Executive branches of government.
Scott is currently a partner with PACE, LLP, a Washington, DC based government relations firm. He is also actively involved in real estate development in Eastern North Carolina, co-owning the land formerly known as Renny’s Creek mine in New Bern.
Working with and helping dozens of conservative candidates over the past three decades, Scott brings to the Republican Party a wealth of political experience and currently serves as vice-chairman for the Craven County Republican Party.
He and his wife, Jennifer Dacey, have resided in Eastern NC for over a decade. They have two children, Drew and Jack. The family lives in Trent Woods and attends Garber United Methodist Church.
