Bay Scoggin

Bay Scoggin is a seasoned political operative and Returned Peace Corps Volunteer that comes to the Texas Public Interest Research Group from years of experience fighting for what he believes in. While serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ethiopia, Bay started a nutrition class for expectant mothers to combat extremely high rates of malnutrition; lobbied for and helped build a new latrine for the town bus station to combat high sanitation-related illness; and directed a team that organized a summer camp for adolescent women to increase their self-confidence, learning skills, and knowledge of STIs.  He hopes to continue his work to improve the lives of ordinary citizens here at home as the director of TexPIRG. Bay will be fighting unfair household solar energy fees that de-incentivize installation of new panels, championing consumer rights against the press of powerful special interest lobbies, and reconciling our election system with the American value that freedom and liberty come from a healthy democracy where votes matter more than money.  

Bay went to school in Boston, MA., has traveled to all continents except Austrailia, and in his minimal time off from advocating for the public, enjoys sports, being outdoors, and reading.
