I am running to return to the House of Delegates with hope that I can make a difference. Not just as 1 Delegate but to work with ALL House Members and State Senators to restore West Virginians confidence in our state’s leadership. I served 4 years in the House previously. I know I can work together with my fellow Delegates to get West Virginia headed in the right direction again. We all want, need good jobs with competitive wages; the best education for our children; great roads to travel. At the end of the day, it does not matter who gets the credit, it is knowing we accomplished something good for all WEST VIRGINIANS.
I am not sure there is one most important issue. A balanced budget with NO shortfall is always at the top of the list. However, getting West Virginians back to work must be first and foremost.
As a Delegate from 2011 to 2014, I sponsored several pieces of Legislation that benefited our Military Personnel and their families both retired and active members of the Armed Forces and Teacher’s, Sheriff’s and Emergency Management Systems Retirement Systems.
I am not sure however, the Roads to Prosperity clearly stated safety and public comments would be taken into consideration which Alternate would be used. 180 citizens signed a petition supporting 5A. If I am fortunate enough to win the election, I will do everything I can to get the DOT to consider the citizens choice of 5A.
