If you follow this blog much, you’ll know it’s not much of a secret who I support in the House district race. I’ve previously written about Daniel Stout, and I’ve been (and will continue to be) active with his campaign. He’s a great representative, and we need to keep him in office.
Daniel is running against two other candidates, Steve Golden and Paulette Rakestraw-Braddock. Because of my involvement with the Stout campaign, I’ve chosen not to say anything specific about either challenger.
Daniel votes for smaller government and lower taxes. (His voting record – in detail – is available online here.) He stood up to the Republican leadership – under heavy pressure – and refused to vote for that absurd hospital tax. (He was, by the way, the only Paulding representative from the House or Senate to vote against that tax.) Daniel scored 100% on the Americans for Prosperity score card that was recently released.
Daniel is one of the few people in Atlanta with the courage to stand on principle in every instance. There really is no reason for someone who values limited government and lower taxes to consider anyone other than Daniel Stout in the District 19 race.
