Kump did not name a particular political office in his precandidacy registration, explaining, “That also is part of my forthcoming final decision.”
The Falling Waters grass-roots citizen advocate went on to point out, “When I first was a candidate for election to the West Virginia House of Delegates in 2010, it was my pledge and firm conviction to always stand up and speak out on behalf of taxpayer friendly and less intrusive government. That has not changed. Even though seventy-five (75) fellow Republican and Democrat Delegates previously cosponsored legislation with me, I never have been and never will be someone who goes along, just to get along. Simply doing what’s right is the best of all rewards.”
He went on to make the point that, “While carefully considering the whole gamut of citizen concerns, it also is my persistent practice and philosophy to make certain that my advocacy always is in compliance with the purpose of our divinely inspired Constitution. Our Constitutional principles include protecting our individual liberty, personal accountability, and personal empowerment (i.e., the well-springs of our American Excellence).”
The Berkeley County Republican further promised to continue his personal and public practice of individual integrity, independence, and insight.”
Mr. Kump lays claim to over forty (40) years of extensive experience and skills in public policy and administration. He also is a kinsman of founding father Patrick Henry and former West Virginia Governor Herman Guy Kump. More information about his biography and positions are available at www.LarryKump.com.
