During the past 20 years, we in the 4th Congressional District have chosen and supported U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings. He has been a devoted and tireless advocate, fighting for our rights and liberties. Choosing his replacement might not be easy for some, but for me it is simple.
We need someone who will defend the Constitution, who will bring back the good name that is America. This person needs to be a God-fearing man who isn't afraid of a good fight and will listen to us when we need him.
I am voting for George Cicotte. He is just the man we need to lift this district and this nation. His 20 years as a lawyer working in the health care field, an accomplished small-business owner and a devoted husband and father to seven children give him the needed experience and knowledge for this district.
Remember this: Our choices will forever ring into the future of our children. Choosing George will give us the brighter future our generations in this district deserve. Please stand with me and many others and vote for Cicotte. He definitely is the right choice at the right time.
