The recent Benton County Republican Straw Poll alludes to the fact that George Cicotte has moved the needle radically from when he was a virtually unknown candidate in February, to being a leading contender for the 4th District congressional seat today -- worthy of your support.
As a professional political strategist, here's my take on why George is so appealing:
George's hard work ethic matters. George has demonstrated his ability and willingness to work tirelessly in an effort to reach out to voters across the entire district -- a trait he will use in D.C. to fight for the issues that matter to us here at home.
Issues matter. George's reasonable approach, coupled with his expertise on health care and fiscal matters is attractive to voters looking for real, substantive change. His Contract with Eastern Washington brings accountability and transparency that voters appreciate.
Values matter. George's focus on the values inherent in the Constitution, and his lifetime dedication to those principles gives hope to people who have lost faith in government.
It's refreshing to see a candidate who is so well qualified work so hard to earn our support. I hope you will join me in voting for George Cicotte in the upcoming primary.
