Walter Dougherty - Candidate for Council District 3, City of Valparaiso
My name is Walter Dougherty. As a devoted neighbor and citizen of Valparaiso, I'm running for Valparaiso City Council District 3.
My wife Barbara and I raised two daughters in Valparaiso. Our family, including Wanda and Susan, a son-in-law Dan, and grandson Andrew all reside in the Valparaiso area.
I attend Bible Baptist Church.
I will fight for sound fiscal policies in local government
"Fighting on the Frontline for You!"
I proudly served our Country in the U.S. Army and salute all who have given to protect our freedom. With over 34 years of service, I retired from U.S. Steel - Gary Works and was a union machinist by trade.
This past fall, I participated in the first-ever offered, six-week Valparaiso City Government Academy and received a certificate upon completion.
Engaged with our local government for years, I'm excited at the opportunity to step up and work towards a better Valparaiso for both my family and yours. I am running as a Republican for Valparaiso City Council District 3 to help ensure that our constitutional freedoms are enjoyed for generations to come.
My platform and issues:
* My Oath is to support both the Indiana and U.S. Constitutions. * Reduce wasteful city-government spending. * Oppose new taxes. * Support new and existing businesses. * Prioritize Valparaiso Police & Fire Departments -- because your Safety Matters!
