The Grimmers have called Hawaii home for 75 years
"Papa" Robert Grimmer met "Tutu" Floy Grimmer in Waikiki after World War II. They settled in Hilo, where he worked for Mauna Loa Macadamia Nuts, and had two sons.
In 1982, Scott's parents, Gary and Betsey Grimmer, moved to Kailua where Scott was born in 1987, the fourth of four children.
Scott and his siblings, Meredith, Jeffrey, and Tracey, now live in Kailua and Kaneohe with Scott's five nephews and nieces, Kalaʻi, Maika, Shanti, Jaxon, and Cole, who range in age from 0 to 20 and attend Hawaii charter schools and Windward Community College.
Scott graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in economics in 2007, and earned a law degree there in 2010. After graduation, he launched MileValue, an online travel business.
In business, Scott created the kinds of remote 21st century jobs that Hawaii needs to create to end its over-reliance on tourism.
Scott wants to be a smart, forward-looking voice in the Hawaii House, who can use his business experience to get Hawaii back to work.
