Dave Westlake is All About Honor, Duty, and Country

Written By: Jerry Hanson  |  Posted: Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Dave Westlake is a Republican candidate for United States Senate. He is vying for the senate seat currently held by Senator Russ Feingold. Dave lives in Watertown with his wife and three children. He was born and raised in Reeseville and, besides his time in the Army and a few professional ventures, he has lived his whole life here in Wisconsin. He is an entrepreneur and small business owner and an active member of River Valley Alliance Church. He is a U.S. Army veteran (Combat Engineer in 10th Mountain Division, Ft. Drum, NY), and a life member of the National Rifle Association. Dave received his Bachelor of Science degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point (Major: Environmental Science and Environmental Engineering)and his M.B.A. From the University of Chicago Booth School of Business (Concentrations: Strategy, Marketing, Organizational Leadership)

He said, "I am disgusted when I see the government waste our money and abuse our trust. There are common sense solutions from among the citizens that are more likely to succeed than anything big government or 'career politicians' can offer. I believe that the bedrock tenets of liberty, freedom, and a government of the people, by the people, and for the people are as fresh and invigorating today as they were at the birth of this great Republic.... I believe in the limitless ingenuity of the American spirit. I believe in the unlimited power of individual initiative and creativity. I believe that every single one of us makes better decisions for ourselves and for our families than a government of 'an elite few in a distant city.'"
