U.S. Third District Congressman Frank Lucas has named Nicole Scott the new Republican Staff Director of the House Agriculture Committee.  Scott moves from Mr. Lucas’ personal office, where she served as his agriculture advisor for the last ten years.  Lucas took the reins as the Republican leader of the committee last week, replacing Rep. Bob Goodlatte (VA-06).

“I am pleased to announce Ms. Scott’s new role as the Republican Staff Director of the Agriculture Committee,” stated Lucas.  “Nicole has been a valuable member of my staff for the last ten years, and I know that her knowledge and experience will serve the committee well.”

 She comes to the committee after serving as Congressman Lucas’ Deputy Chief of Staff for eight years.  Prior to that, Scott served as his Legislative Director for one year.  Scott was hired after serving as a legislative assistant for former Congressman J.C. Watts for three years.

“I am honored that Mr. Lucas has selected me to serve as the Republican Staff Director for the Agriculture Committee,” stated Scott.  “I look forward to serving Congressman Lucas, the committee, and the people of Oklahoma in my new position.”

Scott hails from Waurika, Oklahoma.  She is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in 1991.  She continued her education at the University of Oklahoma’s College of Law, and earned her Juris Doctorate in 1994.
