Creating a government that puts working people first.
That is the best economic policy. We must put money in the hands of working people to make our State thrive. When working people have money to spend, they spend it in the local economy which creates demand which in turn causes the rich to create jobs. The greater the demand, the more money employers will make from their employees’ work. No one with money will create a job unless they can earn a profit from it. Putting money in working peoples’ pockets lets everyone do better.
Making public education a top priority.
Public education is the backbone of the American dream and, without a successful system, our State will be in constant decline. That means funding education to provide a living wage for teachers and service personnel and getting the Legislature out of our class rooms. Leave education to the educators.
Keeping permanent value from our natural resources.
We must get a fair share of the natural resources being taken from our State to create wealth elsewhere, then we must use that fair share to attract businesses that pay good wages to working West Virginians.
Protecting Our Seniors.
Working toward government transparency.
Work for more transparent elections by making public disclosure of donors mandatory for all participants.
Protecting our Second Amendment Rights.
Protecting our environment without unnecessarily regulating business and industry.
Stopping waste in government by using common sense.
It’s easy, like requiring architects and engineers to bid on public projects instead of the current law that requires that they be selected solely on “qualifications.”
End Unnecessary Taxation.
We must end unnecessary taxation when it affects our competitiveness with other states and countries, but never use our tax system to “buy” jobs. Those jobs never last.
