Representative Scott Tipton (R-CO-03)

Congressman Scott Tipton was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010.  Prior to his election to the U.S. House, Tipton was elected to the Colorado House of Representatives for the 58th District in November of 2008.  During his time at the State House, he sponsored legislation to protect children from the worst criminal offenders by mandating harsher penalties for child sex-offenders and allowing law enforcement to collect DNA evidence from suspects through Jessica’s Law and Katie’s Law.  Congressman Tipton pushed hard to advance a federal version of Katie’s Law to encourage additional states to implement minimum DNA collection standards and enhanced collection processes for felons in order to strengthen law enforcement’s ability to prevent violent crimes and protect women and children.  That effort became a reality when President Barack Obama signed Katie’s Law on January 3, 2013.  Congressman Tipton graduated from Ft. Lewis College in Durango where he studied Political Science and became the first person in his family to earn a college degree.  After college, he returned home to Cortez, Colorado and co-founded Mesa Verde Indian Pottery with his brother Joe.  It was through his business that Congressman Tipton met his wife, Jean, who is a former school teacher.  The Tiptons have two daughters, Liesl and Elizabeth, two sons-in-law, Chris and Jace, and three grandchildren.
