Scott Centorino

Senior Fellow

“FGA is at the forefront of the most important fight of my generation: keeping Americans free. It’s a dream come true to work with FGA to prioritize meaningful, productive work, and to combat the growth in government programs that incentivize people to stay in government dependency. Countless families—including my own—left their homelands without opportunity. They came to this country to build a better life through hard work, and they were successful. I want that same opportunity to exist for generations to come.”

Scott Centorino is a senior fellow at the Foundation for Government Accountability, where he focuses on welfare reform policies that promote opportunity for more Americans.

Prior to joining FGA, Scott served as an Assistant Attorney General with the Louisiana Department of Justice, specializing in civil rights and constitutional litigation. Scott is also a First Lieutenant in the United States Army Reserve, serving as a Judge Advocate in the JAG Corps. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Politics from Washington and Lee University and received his Juris Doctor from Wake Forest University School of Law.

Scott first experienced the value of hard work by playing trombone in a community band. The power of work to change the trajectory of not just one life, but generations to follow, fuels his desire to ensure America remains the land of opportunity and freedom.

Scott, a self-identified sports nut, finds joy in the simple things: getting lost in the woods, playing the trombone, and running along the Bogue Falaya. He lives in Covington, Louisiana with his wife, Sarah.
