Mayor Scott James
Scott taught in Kanawha County Schools for 30 years. As an educator, he coached several sports culminating with the head coaching position for the St. Albans High School Girls Basketball Program. He served in this position for 14 years and turned a 0-23 team into a top 10 program.
Scott brings this history of making things better and winning to the office of Mayor. He is so excited to work with a city council with the same vision for St. Albans that he has, the employees of the city, the businesses, and the citizens to achieve the goal of making St. Albans the best town in WV. He has and will continue to work tirelessly to achieve his goals. Scott has an open door/phone policy and encourages the citizens to bring their concerns to him or drop by to say hello.
Mayor's State of the City Address
New businesses continue to open in St. Albans; the medical cannabis dispensary, Cannabist, will be opening the first week of March in the old Pizza Hut Location, and Pets Supplies Plus has begun renovation of the old Aarons Rent to Own building and will be opening in the next month or two.
The older that I get, the more I dislike cold weather—but with cold weather comes two of my favorite holidays of the year, Thanksgiving and Christmas! This also means that the Saint Albans Parks and Recreation employees are very busy preparing for the Festival of Lights.
