Sean Scott, co-owner of Subcultural Coffee in West Palm Beach, is weighing a run for mayor. 

Scott says he's got a finger in the pulse of downtown.

He has always been vocal with West Palm Beach leaders about wanting to fix issues like crime, parking and homelessness. 

Now, he wants to turn that into action.

"Just want to give back to our city for a reason. It's not about political ambition its really about creating a better space and innovative ways," he says.

Scott says his business skills, like money management and leading a team, will transfer well to a position as a mayor. 

In June, he will make a formal announcement to run.
