CARING FOR OUR PEOPLE
IN THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES
"COVID-19 has impacted and challenged us all: but I also see it as an opportunity to bring our communities together. I wanted to highlight some of our charitable organizations who are struggling to raise money while they continue to provide much needed services. I remind you to continue to support our local nonprofits and small businesses as we work towards rebuilding and strengthening our economy. Join me. Together, we can build an even better West Virginia."
Here are a few in which I know and have come to love for the selfless work that they do...
- Greeting Friends -
It is time to put the people first- ahead of corporations and out of state interest. Everything we do as a Legislature should focus on helping people who have made West Virginia home- not corporate bailouts or lining the pockets of the corrupt.
On every piece of legislation elected officials work on, they should ask:
How does this support West Virginians. I pledge to work towards:
Making West Virginia a place where working families can thrive, not just survive.
Making West Virginia a destination state not a departure state.
Supporting ALL West Virginians, from students to seniors.
Ten years ago I had the opportunity to serve in Legislature when focusing on hard working West Virginians and their families was the #1 priority. Then I had sat out for four years to focus on getting married, my small businesses, and raising 3 wonderful little Skaff boys. During that time I sat by getting frustrated by the lack of creativity and solutions to these ongoing issues stemming from the opioid crisis, to education, to our lack of support for our seniors, and nothing to keep our students from leaving our state after graduation.
During my last two years back in the Legislature I realized the importance of keeping an open mind, building consensus, and creating bipartisanship to move WV forward. The fact that people are more worried to represent their party than their constituents is frustrating, but we most work together to accomplish what needs to be done to help our region and state. We CANNOT just work for Democrats or Republicans we must work together for all West Virginians. We must focus on West Virginia issues not National Party agendas and come together as one elected body with real ideas, compromises and solutions.
I am excited about the opportunity to seek your vote for the WV House of Delegates. My campaign will be about grass roots, hard work, and keeping the interest of West Virginians first.
I need your help. Continue to browse my website, check my facebook page and help me spread the word about our campaign. We can’t win this election without your help and I invite you to become an active volunteer/ supporter and help us succeed together in this campaign.
