Dave Bel­ton

The Covington News - - LOCAL -

Q: Why are you run­ning for of­fice at this par­tic­u­lar time? In other words, what is the spe­cific im­pe­tus for your run this year?

A: I have served on our lo­cal school board for 8 years, dur­ing which time we have raised grad­u­a­tion rates to among the top 10 per­cent in the state, while also re­duc­ing the an­nual budget. At this par­tic­u­lar time, I see the op­por­tu­nity to serve the people of New­ton and Mor­gan County as their state rep­re­sen­ta­tive and would be hon­ored to do so.

Q: Why specif­i­cally are you run­ning as op­posed to any other of­fice?

A: Doug Holt has been an out­stand­ing state rep­re­sen­ta­tive for New­ton and Mor­gan County for the past 10 years. I am run­ning for his seat to con­tinue the con­ser­va­tive, com­mon sense lead­er­ship he has pro­vided for our district and our state. Q: What is your plat­form? A: I sup­port Fair Tax (elim­i­nat­ing state in­come tax); I sup­port Lo­cal Con­trol and Re­duc­ing the Size of Govern­ment; I sup­port School Choice; I sup­port Job Cre­ation and Qual­ity Eco­nomic Growth; I op­pose Oba­macare in Ge­or­gia; I op­pose Obama’s Com­mon Core.
