Dalton's focus on jobs, those who lose them

The loss of 15,000 jobs in State Sen. Walter Dalton's district during the past decade has shaped the legislative career of Dalton, a 59-year-old Rutherfordton lawyer.

Dalton is a pro-business Democrat who has supported utility companies, the billboard industry and homebuilders. He has focused on aid for laid-off workers – from helping people keep their homes to making it easier to attend community college.
