"Mike Noblet provided valuable candidate coaching for me in my successful 2018 race for Island County Commissioner.
As I was a complete newcomer to the political world, he helped me refine my written and oral style to create a more disciplined message to take to voters.
He also served on my campaign team, advising on strategy and voter engagement whether through signs, written materials, voter forums or events. He was an asset to my team."

He helped me fine tune my campaign speech and encouraged lots of practice and respect for timing, which led to a much improved delivery."

“You are a man with much experience as a candidate and campaign manager. You have walked in the shoes of the candidate so you know what and how to organize winning local district races. With tact, you avoid hurting people’s feelings, while explaining what they need to hear for their self-improvement. You’re a task master, Mike, something every candidate needs. And you even coach on what to eat and why a good amount of sleep is so important.”
Former Assessor, Island County, Washington

Former columnist for the Bothell-Kenmore Reporter
“As a community organizer in the Houston area, I have seen what it takes run successful down- ballot campaigns. Mike Noblet’s approach to campaigning, as reflected in his book Down-Ballot Winner, makes it much easier for those running for local district office on a shoe string budget to wage winning campaigns.”

“Mike has been doing an outstanding job for our community, and it has been a pleasure to serve for, and with, him as we strive to do what is right for our community. He is one of those rare people who makes promises while on the campaign trail and then fulfills them once in office. I hope the voters of Bothell look at what he has done for the good of the whole and do not take the shallow path of buying unproven goods.”
Former City Manager, Bothell, Washington
“Mike Noblet always advocates strongly for Bothell’s interests. Mike is a true public servant who deserves to be re-elected on November 6th”

Former residents of Bothell, Washington
“I am pleased to endorse Mike Noblet for re-election. He’s is a consistent and credible advocate for Bothell’s interests. It was he who identified the need for a connector road to solve cut- through traffic in Canyon Firs. Due to his leadership that project will be completed a full year earlier than it would have otherwise.”
Former Snohomish County (Washington) Executive
“Mike Noblet has performed well in his office and deserves re-election on November 6th. His active interest in all community activities reflects his concern for his city.

“Mike Noblet has been one of my closest friends for a long time. I have observed and admired his performance as a capable campaign manager, competent candidate, respected public official, and trusted friend.
I first knew him when he was an administrative aide to a county commissioner. One of Mike’s strong points is his ability to get things done to the satisfaction of opposing groups: races, income groups, special interest groups, developers, environmentalists, homeowners, and officials of other governmental agencies.
His personal reputation passed the most crucial test when he ran for state representative. Political issues aside, his personal honesty, record of accomplishment, and broad capabilities were never questioned, not once, by anyone including his opponents.
Mike’s understanding of what it takes to run for and win local political office is first rate. His successful candidacies were due in large part to how he motivated many to share his dream for a better community and volunteer their time and/or money to his campaigns.
You will not regret working with Mike!”

“. . . you have been extremely valuable to me in my attempts to provide Harris County taxpayers with the best service possible.
Your tenacity in pursuing the solution to tough problems is commendable. And your utter disregard for normal working hours exhibited your real concern for the needs of the citizenry.

“Mike and I worked together for 18 years developing Provider Advantage as a company. Mike is a tireless worker and was essential as the company’s sales grew year after year. He understood the needs and limitations of his primary sales targets, and, as a result, created messaging and product pricing that enabled him to sell our services to 90 percent of the Washington state market.
Mike is a strategic thinker, one who understands how to deflect the efforts of our larger competitors. With that track record, I know that anyone running for local elective office will conduct a smart, effective campaign under Mike’s invaluable guidance.”
