is hard to believe that it has been
ten years since
you, the voters, sent me to Charleston
to be YOUR voice at the Legislature.
My sincerest thanks to all of
you who voted for me, volunteered,
and donated financially to my
campaign. I could not have achieved
victory without each and every
one of you.
2012 election season is upon
us and I ask for your support once
again! In 2002, you voted for CHANGE!
Like me, you love West Virginia
and desire to stay here, raise
and make a decent living. With
the loss of 50,000 jobs over
few years and with our young people
leaving our wonderful state, West
Virginia had lost more than $1.5
billion in revenue & wages. Like
me, you were tired of West Virginia
ranking 49th in per capita income.
We have many strengths......tourism,
Marshall University, wonderful hospitals,
and new developments like Pullman
Square. Together, we have proven that we can build upon our strengths.
believe that promises made, should
be promises kept. Results, not rhetoric,
is important. As Benjamin Franklin
once said, "Well DONE, is better
than well SAID." When you first
elected me, I promised to be hardworking
and diligent for my district, I was one of approximately 16 legislators out of 100 to be honored each year by the House Clerk for my 100% voting record. In nine years,
I never missed a vote! I will continue
to work hard for YOU!
If re-elected, I will continue to
keep my promises. I will continue to
hold the line on no new tax increases
on our already overburdened citizens
and continue to work to prioritize
spending, cut government waste, and
work with local, state, and federal
leaders in a collaborative effort to
improve West Virginia.
West Virginia is at the crossroads.
We can either go back to the past or
we can embrace the future! I believe
West Virginia has a bright future.
Together, let's keep the momentum for
CHANGE! Together, we can continue to
move West Virginia in the right direction!
