Falling Waters, West Virginia – Former West Virginia Delegate Larry D. Kump (2011-2014, Berkeley-Morgan Counties) announced, "After a strong and steady stream of personal pleadings urged me to return to public office in 2016, and after prolonged pondering and personal prayer, I have made a decision to answer these calls to return to duty. And so, I have agreed to be a candidate for election to the West Virginia State Senate. I also am a candidate for election as a West Virginia delegate to the 2016 Republican national convention.""When I first was a candidate for election to the West Virginia House of Delegates in 2010, it was my promise and firm conviction to always stand up and speak out on behalf of taxpayer friendly and less intrusive government. That has not changed, nor will it.""Seventy-five (75) different Republican and Democrat legislators, in the one hundred (100) member West Virginia House of Delegates, previously cosponsored legislation with me. Even so, 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.""While continuing to carefully listen to the whole gamut of citizen concerns, my grass-roots championing has been and always will be in compliance with our divinely inspired Constitution, the well-spring of our American Excellence.""Accordingly, I will continue to strive to protect our individual liberty, personal accountability, and personal empowerment.""The pursuit of these principles of good governance will give us meaningful tax reform, protect retired senior citizens and working Mountaineers, defend our personal right to bear arms, and safeguard our personal property rights and family values.""Of course, government transparency and accountability also are essential for this to happen.""Meanwhile, I pledge to continue my own personal and public practice of integrity, accountability, and transparency. As always in elected office and in every other aspect of our lives, character counts."Mr. Kump has 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.West Virginia State Senate District #15 includes all of Hampshire and Morgan counties, most of Mineral county, and most of Berkeley County (excluding the City of Martinsburg and numerous precincts that mostly are east of the city).Those who wish to encourage and endorse his candidacy should send their contributions, whether modest or magnanimous, to:"Friends of Larry D.
