State Del. Rick Snuffer, candidate for U.S. Congress, will be addressing the Republican National Convention in Tampa next Monday evening. Snuffer was invited to speak about the negative impact President Obama's War on Coal has had on the economy.
"I am honored and humbled to accept the invitation to speak on behalf of the citizens from West Virginia's 3rd Congressional District on the importance of stopping the War on Coal and the negative consequences it has on our economy," Snuffer said. "In West Virginia, coal is our economic engine. Coal mining is vitally important to families in West Virginia and families from many states throughout the country. We must do all we can to stop the burdensome regulations that are slowly bringing our state's economic engine to a crawl."
Rick Snuffer, 50, was born and raised in Southern West Virginia. Snuffer was elected in 2010 to serve in West Virginia's House of Delegates. He and his family reside in Beckley.
