Letter: My take on Republican candidates for 69th Assembly District

EDITOR: I've been observing the Republican candidates in the special election for teh 69th Assembly District. Here is what I think of them:

Scott Noble is the most consistent candidate with his overall position that we need to reduce the size and scope of government and oppose federal overreach. Getting the government out of the way by reducing impediments to business, reducing regulation, taxation, and the bureaucratic burden will go a long way toward improving Wisconsin's economy. Noble is good on the Second Amendment including constitutional carry and is very good on social issues.

Alanna Feddick-Goodwin seems to know the issues well, but I have less confidence in her consistency and sincerity. It seems like she changes her position depending on who is in the audience. Seeing her record on the Marshfield City Council, I have a harder time believing she will vote to reduce the size and scope of government, as she claims. She supports concealed carry but thinks we should, "see what other states are doing."

Robert Kulp: I have no doubt that Kulp is capable of running a business. But he likes the public/private partnership idea (crony capitalism) since he's availed himself of government benefits in the past and consistently talks about his national lobbying efforts. Economically, I believe this leads to too many problems. We all remember Solyndra, which is just the tip of a very big iceberg, both federally and on a state level. Why do roofers need to lobby?

Tommy Dahlen: Dahlen seems like a nice enough guy, but I don't think he would know an issue if it jumped up and bit him. He runs a business and balances the books for the Tavern League, which is good, but he has stated several times he thinks it's good for government to give your tax dollars to business, which is bad.
