Delegate Dave Nutter

January 26, 2011

David A. Nutter was born in Clarksburg, WV on April 2, 1955. He recieved his B.A. from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1979. Nutter is in the 7th House (R) which includes the part of Montgomery County, part of Pulaski County and the City of Radford. Dave was elected in to the Virginia House of Delegates in 2001 and he’s currently serving his fifth term. He is a member of the follwing committees: Health, Welfare and Institutions; Malitia, Police and Public Safety, and Science and Technology. Dave is passionate about a number of issues. One issue being education, specifically public education. In 2004, he fought to secure the largest funding increase for public schools in the history of Virginia. Another issue is equal opportunity for Virginia’s youth. Dave strongly believes that all students will need some sort of additional training or education (not necessarily college) in order to develop skills that will help them be successful in their future career choices. Making healthcare more easily available for Virginia workers is a top priority for Nutter. He co-sponsored legistlation in 2009 that made healthcare plans easier to attain for smaller buisnesses. Tax credits were also extended in 2008 to the same small companies that offered healthcare to their employees. In 2008, the state funding for the New River Community College (Christiansburg location) was dropped but because of Nutter’s understanding of the importance of higher education, he quickly had the funds restored. He also put into motion a Community College Transfer Fund which grants students who complete their first two years at a community college up to $2,000 towards the four year school of their choice.
