Re-elect Lawrence and Skinner
I have said it before, but I will say it again. Your readers are fortunate to be able to vote to re-elect Delegates Tiffany Lawrence and Stephen Skinner to the West Virginia Legislature in the upcoming general election.
I know I am not from your county. But the views of someone who has been on the inside of the Legislature should be particularly valuable to your readers. Over the years I have lobbied the Legislature about the rights of surface owners and small mineral owners when the oil and gas drillers come calling, about consumer issues like sued car warranties, about improvements in divorce courts and laws, and so on. I have done these things as board president of a statewide consumer organization and as a lawyer for the little guy. I even worked once for the Legislature as a lawyer drafting bills for the legislators.
I have had the privilege of working with Delegates Lawrence and Skinner on many of these issues since they have been elected to the Legislature. They listen hard, think hard, make their own decisions and then work hard to do what is best for your readers in their district and the State of West Virginia.
Our state and our state government have problems. We have those problems because there are not enough legislators like Delegates Lawrence and Skinner in the Legislature from other parts of West Virginia. I urge your readers to vote in the upcoming election to send Delegates Lawrence and Skinner back to the Legislature! It will be good for your readers and for the rest of West Virginia.
