Steve Young
Benicia City Council Member
Candidate for Benicia Mayor

I am very pleased to endorse Terry Scott for Benicia City Council. Terry is a bright, dedicated person who I have had the pleasure of working with for several years. He has impressed me with his intelligence, work ethic, vision, and dedication to the community. His work heading the Benicia Arts and Culture Commission, and leading our Public Arts efforts, has done so much to improve and beautify our community and increase visitors both from home and nearby. More than that, however, Terry has a long and successful career in corporate America, heading up a 700 person division for Hasbro with a $1.8 billion budget. He currently consults for a variety of businesses focusing on future planning. He is the rare combination of being a visionary looking at where we are heading, while also focusing on our current challenges. Please join me in supporting Terry Scott for Benicia City Council in November.

“Benicia is in trouble and change is needed. That is why I am endorsing Terry Scott for Benicia City Council.

Terry will bring badly needed fresh eyes and ideas to a council frozen in inaction.

Terry has a demonstrated ability to identify a need, organize the resources to fill that need and then deliver a completed project. 

Terry Scott is intelligent, experienced and committed to a better Benicia.

As my Council Member, I think “Terry will be Terrific”

When Terry Scott commits himself to a project – get out of the way!  Terry will get it done by leading his staff towards solving the most challenging of projects. Along the way. he will provide alternative ideas that spring forward from looking at the project from many different aspects. 

Terry was my go-to guy when we needed to solve a difficult problem quickly. Not only could I always count on him to creatively find a solution, I knew he and his global team would come in on time and on budget. 

With a large team in the United States, China and the UK, Terry was always effective in managing a sizeable and diverse global work force with a significant budget. 

As an example, his proposal to create a 10,000 square foot video production facility for Hasbro initially received a lukewarm reception but after 2 years and 46 power-point presentations (yes really!), he convinced us to make the investment. His perseverance was proven to be worthwhile when the investment in what is now called Cake Mix Studios paid itself back in just 18 months and has been an invaluable asset for Hasbro ever since. 

In addition to his astute business acumen and outstanding creativity Terry is also passionate about sustainability. He led the drive to eliminate PVC from our packaging, got rid of those pesky plastic wire ties and created new types of shipping boxes which reduced millions of pounds of corrugated materials from entering the waste stream. His leadership in driving sustainability led Hasbro to establish the sustainability standards for Walmart and then for the entire toy industry – quite an accomplishment! The legacy of his passion for sustainability in toy packaging and associated materials continues to be seen every day in the industry.  In summary, I strongly recommend Terry for a role in the City Council because his vision, integrity, passion and ceaseless energy will be invaluable to the community.

For those of you who know Terry, you know he’s a bundle of ideas and energy wrapped up with a businessman’s understanding of how things get done. As former CEO and Chairman of the Board of Hasbro Inc., I’ve had the opportunity to see Terry work extremely hard toward building our company as we entered a massive period of growth. Terry built a global creative services group that anticipated every need we might encounter. He provided vision and understanding of how to make things happen that met all company goals and objectives as well as understood the need to think how to best treat his large staff with compassion and empathy. 

In addition to creative problem solving, Terry was deeply involved in making Hasbro products more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Due in large part to his leadership, Hasbro proudly led the toy industry in finding ways to create sustainable packaging – both domestically and globally. 

Terry is a leader. Terry is creative. Terry is a problem solver. Above all, Terry has a heart and cares about people. Your city will be a better place with Terry as a member of your city government.
