LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Walton Right Choice for State Representative

For the past several decades, we in the 59th District have been blessed with effective and successful state representatives in Lansing.  As voters, we are now presented with the job of choosing our next representative who will have the daunting challenge to continue this heritage.  It is my opinion that Larry Walton is the candidate who can meet this challenge.

I believe that the key similarity of our past successful representatives has been their ability to promote the conservative values of our district, while at the same time being able to establish a working relationship with representatives from the other side of the aisle in order to actually get things done in Lansing.  Just as importantly, they have maintained positive and continuous communication with our State Senators and U.S. Congressmen to make sure everyone is working in the same direction. I believe Larry Walton is the candidate who is most likely to continue this representative approach.

When you factor in that Larry will bring to Lansing years of experience in agriculture and education, I think it is clear that Larry is the best candidate to be our next state representative from the 59th District.

I encourage the voters of the 59th District to cast their vote for Larry Walton on Aug. 4.
