This week, we remembered the tragedy of September 11th. It was a stark reminder for me that we are facing serious issues in our nation and in our state. Are we going to continue down the wrong path in West Virginia with more unemployment, less coal jobs, and more of our tax dollars being wasted by Charleston politicians? Or are we going put our state back on track by growing jobs and ending the corruption and wasteful spending by the career politicians?
This is an important choice for voters on November 6th, and this is a crucial election. The choice is yours, the voters of West Virginia. With 50 days until the election, please let your friends and neighbors know how important this is for the future of West Virginia.
