Scott Cook is running for Mayor of the Town of Gray Court. He lives on Main Street and represents a family that has lived in the area for many years.
His company, Gray Estate Realty LLC, does business primarily in Laurens County and southern Greenville County.
Cook is married and has two sons and three grandchildren. The older is stationed in Germany with the U.S. Air Force, and the youngest lives in Simpsonville, where he works for Hussman Corporation.
This is Cook’s second run for mayor. Incumbent John Carter has held office for 33 years.
“I believe the time is right for a change,” Cook said. “Gray Court is the ‘Gateway to Laurens County.’ We connect to one of the richest counties in the state. As growth comes to Laurens County, it has to come through Gray Court.
“I would work to improve our water system and service, and increase sidewalks throughout the entire town. Also, I would have a grant writer searching for any and all grants that could improve the quality of life for all people of Gray Court.
“I would like to ask all voters in the Gray Court city limits for their vote. I will work for us to help Gray Court grow in an orderly fashion and a timely manner.”
