By Staff | Aug 7, 2015

West Virginia native and Harpers Ferry resident, Riley Moore, makes his run for the open 67th District seat official.

“I am truly excited to officially launch my campaign for the House of Delegates today. I’ve spent the past several months exploring the possibility of a run consulting with many throughout the community as well as with many friends and family members. Today it is official, I’d like to be the next representative of West Virginia’s 67th District,” notes Moore.

“There are tough challenges facing our district, region, and state. We need a strong leader in Charleston to stand up for our needs here in Jefferson County. We need opportunity, not obstacles, to create a pathway forward to economic prosperity. Charleston must be a partner in our Jefferson County’s future, not an impediment. I look forward to discussing these very issues as well as others with the constituents of the 67th in the coming months.”
