Issue Position


In the last few years, we have seen some of the most difficult conditions in our lifetime. I remain committed to creating more jobs and by working together, we can build a brighter future for our district and for all of West Virginia. Even though West Virginia as a whole has fared better through this recession than many other states, many challenges remain in order to get our economy back on track. That's why I support helping small businesses find ways to be able to grow and add more jobs. I supported allocating 5% of coal severance funds to coal producing areas like Kanawha County to help build infrastructure and funding for economic development which will help create jobs. I know that without a well-trained workforce, it's hard to attract new jobs and industry. That's why I support adult education, literacy programs and adult workforce retraining that gives working people the skills they need to succeed and transition into the new 21st century economy.
