Scott Anthony Angelle (born November 20, 1961) is an American politician who is the former director of the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement in Washington, D.C. From 2013 to 2017, he was the District 2 member of the Louisiana Public Service Commission, an elected five-person utility regulatory body.In 2010, Angelle served six months as lieutenant governor. In 2015, he ran for governor as a Republican in the October 24 election and finished in third place with 214,907 votes (19.3 percent). In 2016, Angelle was an unsuccessful candidate for Louisiana's 3rd congressional district seat held by Charles Boustany, who instead ran unsuccessfully for the United States Senate seat vacated by retiring Republican David Vitter. Angelle's opponents included Lafayette businessman and retired Army Lt. Colonel Greg Ellison, former state Representative Brett Geymann of Lake Charles, former United States Ambassador to East Timor Grover Rees III, and, the eventual winner, Clay Higgins, a former spokesperson for the St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office who gained attention for his Crime Stoppers videos that harshly attack the criminal element. In May 2017, Angelle was appointed as the fourth director for the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement in the United States Department of the Interior under Secretary Ryan Zinke. The post does not require confirmation by the United States Senate.
