Barbara Scott is old enough to have had to wait until 1972, when she was 24, before she could vote in a presidential election! The wait was difficult for a person who has always been interested in politics; especially the politics of the United States. She does not consider politics to be a bad word or many politicians to be bad people. Born in Washington, D.C., she is the daughter of a lifelong civil servant who worked from the age of 18 until he retired, for various agencies of our federal government.
Barbara is a retired public school teacher with a B.A. in Theater and an M.A. in Elementary Education with a reading specialty, who is a gardener, and an avid reader who enjoys writing. She and her husband, John Hotvedt, live atop a beautiful hill in scenic Liberty Township in Susquehanna County. Barbara is a person who holds truth and the rule of law in the highest regard. She is very excited about working on this podcast with a group of women whom she admires and looks forward to collaborating with!
