Vote Donald Nolte

To the Editor:

I would like to bring to the attention of all Vermont voters that Donald Nolte is running for the lone Vermont seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The primary election will be held on August 26, 2014, when Mr. Nolte will face two other candidates from the republican party.

As we all are aware, Washington is currently in a turmoil, almost nothing is being accomplished, and your money is being wasted every day. Mr. Nolte is strongly in favor of a balanced budget in Washington, and the size of our government must be reduced to accomplish this.

Mr. Nolte is a personal friend of mine, and I know that, if elected, he will deal openly and honestly with the people of Vermont. He will work very hard to pass reasonable and sensible legislation in the House.

I believe Mr. Nolte is qualified to go to Washington as our representative because of his career and life experiences. In his early career, he taught high school math and science, but most of his career was spent in the information technology (IT) field. As an employee of Unisys/Sperry/Univac, Mr. Nolte worked on many major projects, such as health care, aircraft maintenance, taxation, welfare and child support. Mr. Nolte also had his own consulting firm and knows what being a small businessman is like. He also served as an acting CFO in two small businesses. As a person who loves detail, he is very capable of examining budgets and auditing financial statements to see what they really contain.

In addition to the fiscal problems in Washington, Mr. Nolte would like to re-introduce integrity, honesty and fairness into the legislative process. Mr. Nolte will oppose the move toward socialism, because socialism does not promote job-growth, but discourages initiative and hard work. The regulation and taxation on businesses must be relaxed, and then businesses will flourish and jobs will be created. Young people must be encouraged to do well in school, obey their parents and the authorities, and learn a skill or attend college. This will increase their chances of getting a job, and being successful in their career.

Our citizens who are unable to work need our help, but that can be accomplished much better if under the control of our local counties and states. Illegal immigrants deserve our sympathy and concern, but first, we must take care of own.

Finally, Mr. Nolte asks us to remember the words of JFK: "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." I implore you to vote Mr. Nolte on August 26th in the primary.
