I believe West Virginia’s government is too big and unaccountable to the people. Too many aspects of our daily lives are being dictated by politicians in Charleston. I want to shrink the size of government, returning more control to counties and local communities. As West Virginia struggles and loses population, the government continues to grow. I’ve proposed that the size of state government should be linked to population growth. As a state senator, I won’t forget that all “state money” comes from the pockets of hard-working West Virginia families. I feel strongly that a small, limited, accountable government will bring economic prosperity and individual freedom back to West Virginia.
