Why I'm Running.

To actually fix the issues we've been talking about for decades. 


We need clean drinking water, rivers, and streams:

  • Much of the 100th district has KARST making it difficult to protect our drinking water

  • Clean water is necessary for livestock and crops

  • Clean rivers and streams support our tourist industry


We need high speed internet in our homes and in our businesses. We need it now to:

  • Allow children to do homework at home (a six-year-old should not have to do homework in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant)

  • Permit people to work at home or run small businesses from home

  • Attract new businesses and make existing businesses more competitive

  •  Increase home values

We need to educate our children for bright and successful futures, by:

  •  Providing them with the best learning experiences possible

  • Increasing the pay for our teachers and school service workers (including locality pay) so that they will stay with our school systems

  • Ensuring they have access to technology and supplies

100th District:  My district is the result of the new one-delegate district system WV recently enacted. Simply put:  I want the best person to represent our communities in Charleston and I believe I am that person because I don’t just talk, I do. It’s more than just holding people accountable, it’s about showing results to the people at home. 

The Difference:  What makes me different from other candidates?  I’m not going to promise you the moon and stars. I’m not going to promise to do something that as a single legislator simply isn’t possible. What I can promise you is that I’m in it for the right reasons - the concerns we share that have no political affiliation:  we just want a better future for the place we call home. I’m not always going to say what people want to hear, but what they need to know.
