Reader Opinion: Nolan is hard working

Being a C-Span and political junkie, I have been grading our House of Representatives for quite a few years and here is how I see them as working for our District 8. Oberstar was hard working, Cravaack was a loser, Nolan is hard working. This is good news. Now, it doesn't matter if you're a Republican, Democrat, or independent, it only matters how hard our Congressman working for us all.

Nolan is excelling in his job: out of 435 House members - Rick Nolan is in the top 10 percent for most productive members - 24 laws signed by the president, $10.9 million to improve Duluth Harbor, $360 million to us for infrastructure improvement and jobs, getting American steel for pipeline projects. He has a big laundry list of all the things he doing for us. If you're interested give his local office a call and they can send you information. It's impressive!

This has been and still is one of the most contentious congresses I've ever seen. So far the only thing Congress as a majority has been interested in is nailing President Obama to the wall, and playing Presidential Gotcha with the hearings. Yet Nolan keeps his head down and just keeps working, no desire to become a political superstar.

I want to say thank you to all you voters who voted for Nolan, in this last election. You did real good for all of us in the 8th District. If you didn't vote for Rick Nolan consider yourselves lucky.
