Holt endorses Belton for District 112

Posted: June 3, 2014 1:36 p.m.

State Representative Doug Holt endorsed Dave Belton in the race for State House District 112 Tuesday.

"In the past six months, I've had many people ask me who I believed could do the best job as our next State Representative,” Holt said. I believe it is time for me to state openly and publicly that ‘Dave Belton is that person’.

"Over the last 10 years I have come to know Dave very well on both a personal and professional level. His commitment to our country and to public service is without equal. His military career includes 23 years of service as a pilot (Navy and Air Force), involving countless missions flown during the Persian Gulf War (Desert Storm/Desert Shield) and in four other conflicts around the world. Even today, in fact just weeks ago, he donated his time once again as a volunteer pilot to bring well over a hundred of our service men and women from Kyrgyzstan back home. As always, he responded to the call of service. It is this call to service that I believe has lead him to run for the House District 112 seat."

Holt sited past discussions with Belton as a reason for believing he can do well in the state capitol.

"Many times during the decade of my legislative service, I have discussed with him important issues facing our district and state,” Holt said. “From those discussions, and from the respect I have developed for him over that period of time, I am unequivocal in my belief he will be a thoughtful and dedicated policymaker, and one who will be responsive to the people of this district."

Holt continued, "Dave offers the people of this district a public servant who is a strong, dependable conservative, and who will make important policy decisions for our district and our state based on the highest principles and convictions. He is a true Republican, in the very best sense. These are the qualities I hope I have delivered in my service, and because I’ve consistently seen these qualities in Dave, I extend him my full endorsement."

"While I have previously made no public statements favoring a candidate in this contest, I believe the importance of the primary runoff to the people of this District, whom I have been honored to serve for ten years, compels me to do so now. In short, if you have been pleased with my service as a legislator, then I respectfully appeal to you to vote for Dave Belton as your next Representative. Early voting begins June 30. My wife, Julie, and I will be actively involved in his campaign, and look forward to working towards his election on July 22."
