Scott's Announcement

Mayor Scott Cosper of Killeen has announced his candidacy for the Texas House of Representatives, District 54, to succeed retiring Rep. Jimmie Don Aycock.

A Republican, Cosper has served as Killeen’s mayor since 2014 and previously served for nine years on the city council. He serves on the Foundation Board for Texas A&M University Central Texas, the Advisory Board for McLane Children’s Hospital, and holds several leadership roles in regional transportation and economic development organizations. Cosper is also secretary of the Texas Military Mayor’s Council and serves on the Fort Hood Second Runway and Airfield Capabilities Expansion Task Force.

Cosper expressed gratefulness for Rep. Aycock’s years of service. “During my time as Mayor, Rep. Aycock has been a trusted friend and partner in the Texas House. He will no doubt continue to be a pillar of the community and I wish him and Marie well in their next chapter of life.”

“With growing cities, charming villages, rolling ranchlands, and a major military installation, District 54’s next representative needs the same deep knowledge of our area’s unique needs. My background of local service, business leadership, and conservative values have prepared me to be an effective advocate for Bell and Lampasas counties in the Texas House,” said Cosper.

A small businessman, Cosper is owner of Cosper Custom Homes and Construction and president of a local real estate development business. His term as Mayor concludes in May.

Scott is married to, Christy, a public school teacher, for 12 years. The Cospers have two daughters and are members at First Baptist Church of Killeen, where Scott has served on the building and stewardship committees.

My family and I are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of one of the greatest and most patriotic Americans we've ever known, General (Retired) Robert M. Shoemaker. He had a very prestigious military career, serving in many key leadership positions. Apart from his incredible combat skills as a Commander, he had a deep concern for soldiers and their families up until his passing. He was a pillar in our community who has led this region for decades, improving the lives of Central Texans in many ways. General Shoemaker represented what makes America great- God, Family, Soldiers and Community. He will be greatly missed. Our prayers go out to his family.

I am proud to announce that 3 of the bills I authored have been signed by the Governor and will become law on September 1, 2017! House Bill 2007 will allow military dentists and dental hygienists to volunteer for unpaid charity work in Texas. This will provide much needed benefits to many of the homeless and indigent, especially in military communities. House Bill 2008 helps protect military personnel and their dependents from predatory lending practices. It is unacceptable for our military personnel and their families to be charged exorbitant interest rates and reoccurring fees when they have already sacrificed so much defending our freedom. House Bill 3359 promotes the national bone marrow registry by allowing information to be posted in driver license offices and on certain DMV documents and videos. This bill was filed in honor of those facing the challenge of finding a bone marrow match. Expanding the registry will expedite the match process providing life saving treatments sooner. I have also co-authored numerous bills and will be providing an update very soon. I would like to thank my colleagues in the House and all of the supporting staff for their help and encouragement. I would also like to thank the Senate and the Governor for recognizing the value in these bills and successfully moving them through the process. God Bless Texas!
