COMMISSIONER OF THE REVENUE FOR THE CITY OF NORFOLK
We refer to the Commissioner of the Revenue’s Office as “your office” because we believe it belongs to all of Norfolk, not just the people who are privileged to work there. We want you to feel the same way since our sole purpose is to serve the residents and businesses of Norfolk to the best of our ability and with professionalism, courtesy, & knowledge. I, along with every other person who works in the office is dedicated to providing you a positive customer experience. – Blythe
I was born and raised in rural Halifax County, Virginia by two hard working parents who refused to let me set limits on where I could go in life and who I could be. My father owned cows, repaired televisions, and worked in a manufacturing plant before realizing his dream of opening a small grocery store. I worked at Five Forks Grocery everyday after school as far back as I can remember. That experience instilled a strong work ethic and taught me the importance of small businesses. My mother worked as a bank teller for many years, so I very quickly learned the importance of finance as the lifeblood of a community.
I later graduated from Princeton University and the University of Virginia School of Law, after which I went on to practice law and manage both large and small law offices for 19 years. I had never worked in government prior to joining the Commissioner of the Revenue’s Office as Chief Deputy four years ago. I became Commissioner of the Revenue for the City of Norfolk in April 2021, when my predecessor resigned to join the private sector. My husband and I are the proud parents of three adult children and we have lived in Norfolk for 19 years. This is home. These life events have all provided me with the knowledge and experience to make our Commissioner of the Revenue Office the best in the Commonwealth. With your support we can make that happen.
Public service is of the utmost importance to me and my family. I am proud to have given my time to the YWCA of South Hampton Roads, ForKids Inc., Lifetime Learning, City of Norfolk Board of Zoning Appeals, Norfolk International Airport, the Library of Virginia, Norfolk State University Foundation, Eastern Virginia Medical School, the Williams School, and the Lutheran Synod of Virginia.
Your support, monetary and otherwise, is vital to a successful campaign. Please contact us if you are willing to volunteer. Click on the button below to make a donation. Thank you! – Blythe
I am enthusiastically endorsing my friend Blythe Scott for Norfolk Commissioner of the Revenue. I have known Blythe and her family for many years and know she has been a tremendous asset to the office since assuming the role as Commissioner of the Revenue. She possesses the knowledge and experience to maintain the high level that is required of the position for the citizens of Norfolk. Blythe is the right choice to continue as Norfolk’s Commissioner of the Revenue.
