Rep. Austin Scott Sworn In

11-01-05_-_Boehner_Swearing_In“Today is not a win for Republicans, it’s about Americans rejecting a federal government that’s grown too big,” Austin Scott said after taking his Congressional Oath of Office Wednesday.

But, he and other newly-elected members of Congress were able to put political parties aside and celebrate a historic day they won’t soon forget.

Scott, who beat incumbent Jim Marshall for Georgia’s 8th Congressional District, was joined by his wife, Vivien, and 11-year-old son, Wells for the swearing-in ceremony in Washington, D.C..

“I want to thank you for the opportunity to serve,” he said.  “It’s going to be a great privilege.”
