A Personal Pledge of Sacrifice & Service


It is a sacred privilege and responsibility to have been elected to serve in the West Virginia House of Delegates District #59 (Berkeley-Morgan counties), beginning in January of 2019..

Just as my campaign was conducted with principle and personal integrity, so will I continue to do my best to be worthy of your respect and trust, as a West Virginia citizen legislator.

Thank you for your votes of confidence, and may God bless you all real good!


West Virginia Delegate-Elect Larry D. Kump

Kump Biography

Larry D. Kump came out of retirement and was first elected to the West Virginia House of Delegates in 2010, serving two terms in office (until the end of 2014). He then once again came out of retirement and was elected for yet another two year term in the West Virginia House of Delegates in 2018 (District #59, Berkeley-Morgan counties).

He also has over forty years of prior legislative and public administration skills and experience.

These skills and experience includes management expertise in managing large budgets and meeting payrolls. This expertise is on both the management and employees' side of the table in multiple jurisdictions throughout our nation. He also has drafted and gotten legislation passed into law, often against formidable opposition.

Larry is no stranger to hard work. He began work at age twelve (managing two newspaper routes at the same time), worked at a local shoe store at age 16 (every day after school and on Saturdays), and then continued working at a number of full and part-time jobs to pay for his college tuition. He even found time to be a local radio personality.

This proud father of David & Sarah graduated from Frostburg State University with a Political Science Major and a Minor in Economics.  Other areas of concentration included Social Science, Business Administration, Economics, Philosophy, and Geography. He later returned to Hagerstown Community College to receive an Associate's degree, which included a concentration  in Criminal Justice.

He worked in bank management, trained as a CPA, was the Legislative Aide for the Pennsylvania Senate Republican Leader, and even was accepted as a candidate for MENSA membership.

This grass roots leader and Constitutional scholar then went on to be a Labor Relations Specialist for the Maryland Classified Employees Association (MCEA), an independent public employee advocate organization.

After working for MCEA, Larry accepted the position as the Executive Director of the Indiana State Employees Association (ISEA), another independent public employee advocate group. He reorganized ISEA's structure and budget, frequently lecturing at Indiana University and Purdue University post graduate classes on public administration practices and principles.

This kinsman to founding father Patrick Henry and former West Virginia Governor Herman Guy Kump (1932 term) also is related to Town of Hedgesville founder Josiah Hedges.

He also previously served as Regional President of the Assembly of Governmental Employees (AGE), overseeing public policy advocacy issues from Illinois to West Virginia.

His other activities included serving as a leader of the Foundation for Advancement for Industrial research (FAIR), the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA), and many other public service organizations.

Moving to West Virginia in 1989, he graduated at the top of his class from the Maryland Correctional Professional Staff Academy as a Maryland Prison Case Manager and also then served as a court expert witness, employee training coordinator, cognitive development trainer, employee critical incident stress counselor, and certified mediator.

He also worked part-time during the evenings as a sex offender group therapy facilitator.

Serving in numerous MCEA elected offices, Larry drafted legislative proposals for the Maryland Legislature and testified before various Legislative Committees.

In 1991, he also successfully organized a coalition of Berkeley County neighbors to block plans for sewage effluent discharge across their privately owned properties by an out-of-state developer.

After witnessing the overwhelmed facilities and woefully inadequate parking at the local Falling Waters Post Office, he contacted and persuaded the national postal authorities to build a new Post Office in 1993.

Larry has been an Arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association and the Better Business Bureau.

A cancer survivor, this independent thinker and advocate of citizen empowerment also is an ordained minister within the Hedgesville Ward (congregation) of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

Larry is a strong believer in rock solid fiscal discipline, enhancing family values, and strengthening individual liberty and personal responsibilities.

Gravely concerned about those who are elected to represent us, Larry continues reminds friends and associates that our government belongs solely to the citizens, and that too many forget that one of the major sources of our nation's greatness simply is its citizens.

Meanwhile, former Delegate Kump has answered the call to return to duty, and now again is a candidate for election to the West Virginia House of Delegates District #59 (Berkeley-Morgan Counties).

"Of Mice & Men" (and also Women)

The "Mouseland" fable originally was written in the 1940's by Clarence Gillis, and then later narrated by the late Tommy Douglas and subsequently made into a slide show presentation.

It was in the late 1960's when I first saw a film of the slide show version, when I was a political science undergraduate student at Frostburg State College in Western Maryland.

It since then has been remade into an animated video version.

Regardless of the politics and Canadian nationality of Tommy Douglas, Mouseland's message rises above fractious and feckless political partisanship, both then and now, with a cry for each and every one of us to stand up and be responsible for our own personal accountability and empowerment.

Click here to watch the video, and decide for yourself if these principles make as much sense to you as they do for me.

Also, pass this along to all of your friends, family, and associates by clicking on the envelope icon at the end of this entry. Even better: Ask them all to go and do likewise!

Regardless of where you live, do your part to support the quest for "Jobs & Prosperity", "Personal Liberty & Family Values", and "Returning Government Back to the People".


Until then, may God bless you all real good!

Working together to Stay Independent,

Larry D. Kump

Montani Semper Liberi & More!

Here are just a few fascinating facts about West Virginia:

*Montani Semper Liberi!” (“Mountaineers are Always Free!”) is our official State Motto. Oft times, our elected officials struggle to understand and preserve this precious liberty. Also, my friend Tom Price, while lamenting the efforts of our West Virginia elected officials to impose even more taxes upon us, recently exclaimed, "Montani Semper Impensa!" (Mountaineers Always Pay the Fee!)

*“Vandalia” was the first name suggested for West Virginia, as part of a proposed 14th colony, which also included Eastern Kentucky and Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. The first name proposed for the current State of West Virginia was “Kanawha”, although that proposal did not include the current Eastern Panhandle as part of West Virginia.

*The West Virginia “State Fruit” is not our elected public officials. It is the Golden Delicious Apple.

*Romney (Hampshire County) and Shepherdstown (Jefferson County) fiercely contest which was the first incorporated municipality in West Virgina, but Hedgesville (Berkeley County) was third.

*Civil War General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson was born in West Virginia.

*The Grandparents of famous frontiersman and hero of the Alamo, Davy Crockett, lived in Spring Mills (Berkeley County). Their home still stands, just a few scant miles from my home in Falling Waters.

*“Pepperoni Rolls” were created by West Virginia coal miners, as a handy meal to take with them into the depths of coal mines. West Virginia Delegate Joshua Nelson authored a resolution naming pepperoni rolls as the official West Virginia State Food in the 2013 session of the West Virginia Legislature.

*The smallest state park in the United States is “Berkeley Springs State Park”, which is right smack downtown in the West Virginia town of “Bath”. Nope, the name of the town of Bath is not Berkeley Springs. Berkeley Springs only is the name of the Post Office which serves the town of Bath.

The Genesis of West Virginia

God was nowhere to be seen for six days.

Finally, Michael, the Archangel, found him resting on the seventh day.

Michael asked God, "Where have you been?".

God smiled with deep satisfaction and pointed downward through the clouds, saying, "Michael, look what I created!".

Puzzled, Michael asked, "What is it?".

"It's a planet", replied God, "and I'm going to call it Earth, and it has balance."

"Balance?", said Michael, "What's that?".

God then explained, pointing out the different areas of Earth.

"For example, this area is a place of great forests, but this other area is covered with rocky mountains. Over there is a region of many lakes and streams, but over here is a broad grassland.".

He continued, "This area is hot and humid, but over here it is cold and covered with ice.".

Michael, impressed with God's handiwork, then pointed to one particular spot and said, "What about that area?".

"That's West Virginia, the most glorious spot on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and plains. The people I've placed there are good looking, modest, intelligent, and humorous. They are sociable, hard-working, high achievers, peaceable, and producers of good things.".

Gasping in awe and wonder, Michael then asked, But what about balance? You said that there would be balance.".

God ruefully smiled and explained, "Over there, just East of West Virginia is Washington, D.C.. Wait until you see those people and that place!".

Faith & Politics: My Personal Pilgrimage

Alexis de Tocqueville, French author (1805-1859), once pointed out, "America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great". So, as we and our nation now move forward, under a new President and Congress, the following previous post of mine struck me as even more relevant now than when I originally posted it, over a year or more ago. May we all prayerfully work together, earnestly seeking the blessings of Providence and good governance, for ourselves and our posterity: Federal Judge Thomas B. Griffith* previously delivered an address, "A Mormon Approach to Politics" **, at the Brigham Young University Milton A. Barlow Center, and his perspective struck a resonating chord within my heart and mind , so much so that it prompted me to summarize my own perspective herein. To me, the principles of my faith and my political views mostly are parallel, each supporting and defining the other, perhaps much in some ways akin to how the Book of Mormon supports and further defines the Bible. Although first elected in 2010 as a Republican in the mostly Democrat West Virginia House of Delegates, my political affiliation is not the only driving force empowering my views about governance. Indeed, I agree with our nation's founding father, George Washington, who disparaged the fractious and feckless political partisanship that so sadly distracts and diverts us from good governance. And so it was that, when I initially and somewhat reluctantly ran for election, I considered myself mostly as an independent and liberty minded "Constitutional" and even "Populist" candidate. I continue to strive to act upon and follow those guiding principles. I stoutly believe that our United States Constitution and "Bill of Rights" is a sacred and dynamic document that succors liberty and individual accountability, as well as fosters economic prosperity. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), my faith reinforces my belief that our United States Constitution was drafted "...by the hands of wise men whom (God) raised up into this very purpose, and redeemed the land by the shedding of blood." (LDS Doctrine & Covenants, Section 101, Verse 80) I also believe that our Constitutional rights should and must be preserved, "That every man may act in doctrine and principle pertaining to futurity, according to the moral agency which (God has) given unto him, that every man may be accountable...". (LDS Doctrine & Covenants, Section 101, Verse 78) Our Latter-day Saint mantra of individual accountability and "agency" (freedom of choice) parallels my political philosophy of individual liberty and economic freedom. Also, as a Latter-day Saint and follower of Christ, I believe and continue to strive to practice the principle of charity (the pure love of Christ) toward others and tolerance of them and their various lifestyles. However, it is, to me, a perversion of these principles, when we attempt to force our fellow citizens and rob them of their personal accountability and freedom by government fiat. Divisive "Identity Politics" further compounds this tragedy, by eroding these principles even more. My heart truly does bleed for the less fortunate, but it is a puzzlement to me when others use their sympathy for the less fortunate to justify expanding initiative destroying government entitlement programs and creating even more of them (more of both the programs and the less fortunate). In my view, these expanding government dependency programs and policies weaken the foundation of our families. They create a sense of expectation that the government somehow is responsible for our welfare and happiness. In doing so, the strength of our families and the health of our nation increasingly crumbles, to the peril of all of us and our children. Indeed, former social worker and United States Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-New York) previously warned us that our rush to increase government control over our lives would lead to the breakdown of our families and an increasingly large and permanent caste system of the underprivileged. His prediction was prophetic, and we now have third and fourth generations of people becoming prey to government entitlements. Increasingly, they now mistakenly look to the government for their well-being and even their happiness. Nowhere has this been more dramatically demonstrated to me than when I previously worked as a prison case manager, dealing with inmates, many of whom had come to expect and even demand "lock-up welfare". Our prisons are overflowing, our freedoms are eroding, and our taxes are increasing - all because we are prostituting our sacred birthrights to the government for "pottage". (Genesis, Chapter 25, Verses 29-34) Moreover, my Latter-day Saint view of good governance is that God "holds man accountable for their acts in relation to them, both in making laws and administering them, for the good and safety of society", and that "...no government can exist in peace, except such laws are framed and held inviolate as will secure to each individual the free exercise of conscience, the right and control of property, and the protection of life." (LDS Doctrine & Covenants. Section 134, Verses 1-2) Further, "...all men are justified in defending themselves, their friends, and property...from the unlawful assaults and encroachments of all persons in times of exigency...". (LDS Doctrine & Covenants, Section 134, Verse 11. See also the 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution) In essence, my faith mirrors that of a Pre-Columbian American prophet, who proclaimed, "My soul standeth fast in that liberty in the which God has made us free." (Book of Mormon, Alma, Chapter 61, Verse 9) Although not born or raised in the LDS faith, I now cannot discern much, if any, difference between my faith and my political views. The origin of my current viewpoint on government is somewhat akin to the old riddle about which came first (the chicken or the egg?). It now is all the same to me. And so it goes. *Judge Griffith currently serves as a circuit judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Washington, D.C. (District of Columbia) Circuit. **"A Mormon Approach to Politics" was published in the Brigham Young University (BYU) Studies Quarterly, Volume 52, Number 1 (2013). Note: Former West Virginia Delegate Larry D. Kump (2010-2014, twice served two year terms of office in the West Virginia House of Delegates (2010-2014), is a High Priest in the Hedgesville, West Virginia Ward and the Martinsburg, West Virginia Stake. He previously worked as a prison case manager, lobbyist, public administrator, labor relations & ethics expert and advocate, group therapist for sex offenders, and certified arbitrator and mediator.

And the truth shall set you free!

And now, the voice of truth & reason:
Notwithstanding numerous flat-out falsehoods that have been propagated about my personal integrity and my positions on the issues, there is one recent mass campaign mailing that is especially egregious.
Simply put, having long proposed that West Virginia cease to tax social security and pensions, I have also introduced legislation, during my previous tern of office (2010-2014), to eliminate state taxation of social security benefits.
This has been clearly stated and published by me, as a candidate for election to the West Virginia House of Delegates (see www.LarryKump.us, "Kump again returns to public service" post).
My advocation of the elimination of state taxation of social security also has been published in "The Morgan Messenger" newspaper and other news media, as well as during various candidate forums.
Further, although falsely claimed otherwise by another detractor, I also have been a long time advocate and supporter for the improvements at Cacapon State Park.

Kump again returns to public service!

Falling Waters, West Virginia – Former two term West Virginia Delegate Larry D. Kump (2010-2014, Berkeley-Morgan Counties) announced, “After a strong and steady stream of personal pleadings urged me to return to public office, and prolonged pondering and personal prayer, I have decided to yet again come out of retirement and answer this call to return to duty. And so, I now am a Republican candidate for election to the West Virginia House of Delegates in 2018 (District #59)."

"For me, this decision was and is not about any other candidate or that candidate's record or position on the issues. Instead, 'Protanto quid retribuamus?' (What shall we give in return for so much?) is the reason for my answer to the call to return to duty."

“When previously elected in 2010, it was my sincere promise and firm conviction to always stand up and speak out on behalf of more taxpayer friendly and less intrusive government. That has not changed, nor will it ever!"

"During my last tour of duty, Seventy-five (75) different Republican and Democrat legislators, in the one hundred (100) member West Virginia House of Delegates, 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."

"To that end, I also denounce and decry all derisive and destructive 'Identity Politics'. Instead, I earnestly seek after and support the shared culture and values of our Constitutional Republic, including a diverse citizenry, but united in support of the principles of liberty and equal justice."

"Accordingly, I will continue to strive to pursue and protect our individual liberty, personal accountability, and personal empowerment. It is the pursuit of these principles of good governance that will give us meaningful tax reform, protect retired senior citizens and working Mountaineers, defend our personal right to bear arms, provide for the local accountability of our schools, better treatment of our school teachers and state employees, and to safeguard our personal property rights and pro-life family values."

"Additionally, more needs to be done about the drug and alcohol abuse that rages throughout West Virginia. And so, our West Virginia legislators, in addition to enacting other prudent measures, should lead by personal example. That's why I'm proposing mandatory drug abuse testing for all West Virginia legislators."

"Also, the destructive and discouraging aftermath of drug and alcohol abuse could and should be reduced by further reforming our sometimes ill advised laws, which still make it too difficult for the repentant and redeemed to re-enter the workplace, thereby becoming self-sufficient and tax-paying members of our communities."

"Meanwhile, West Virginia still faces challenges. Times still are too hard for far too many Mountaineers. That's why we need tax reform, but not more tax burdens.

"A better way is to restructure our already ample state budget, by reforming our tax system and state government programs. Among other things, this could and should lead to improved highways, reduced (not increased) gasoline prices at the pump, better broadband and cell phone access, and the elimination of state taxes on our social security benefits and all pensions.

"Finally, the persistent problem of West Virginia's aging and declining population adversely affects all of us, even including our representation in the United States Congress. In reviewing our state government policies and tax structure, a serious study of how to reverse this decline also should be undertaken, and I have been working on some ideas to turn around this problem."

"Of course, much more government transparency and accountability also are essential for all of this to happen."

"And so, 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, Town of Hedgesville founder Josiah Hedges, and former West Virginia Governor Herman Guy Kump.

Further, for over the past twenty-seven (27) years, former Delegate Kump has lived at the same location and within the current West Virginia House of Delegates District #59. West Virginia House of Delegates District #59 includes the northwestern area of Berkeley County and the eastern area of Morgan County.

A Personal Note from Cheryl




Dear Fellow Mountaineer Friend and Neighbor,


 My name is Cheryl, and I’m writing you today, because my husband, Larry D. Kump, is running for the West Virginia House of Delegates, right here in District #59 (Berkeley-Morgan counties).

 I know, making a decision about who to vote for in any election really can be tough. It can be hard to get to the real truth about the candidates.

 So I’m writing to introduce my husband, Larry D. Kump, to you, on a much more personal level. 

 From our first conversation, prior to our marriage, I immediately knew that Larry was my soul-mate. He's God’s answer to my prayers. His entire life has been dedicated to public service, including his previous service as a West Virginia citizen legislator in the West Virginia House of Delegates (2010-2014).

  Larry is a gentle leader who works to influence rather than demand.  He treats me with tremendous respect, and his sense of humor never fails to crack me up.

  Despite all the demands on his time, Larry always makes sure that I am his top priority.

 Even so, Larry works hard to fight for his core principles, and you always can count on him to keep his word. His personal ethics of integrity, transparency, and accountability are a true reflection of his heart and soul.

   There truly is not a more beautiful place on earth to live than West Virginia, and Larry and I are both dedicated to making it better.  But the fact is, many are still facing hard times, and that impacts every single one of us.

 With more and more big-government tax-and-spend policies and intrusions into the lives of us and our families, too many of us still are struggling to make ends meet and keep our independence.

 That’s why Larry is pushing so hard to grow jobs, fight excessive government control over our lives, bring us tax relief, protect our 2nd Amendment and other Constitutional rights, and bring us all into better tomorrow.

 Larry wants our next generation of West Virginians to inherit a vibrant and strong economy – so that none of us (and especially our children) have to leave to find work in another state.

  I know my husband Larry's heart. He stands up and speaks out on his convictions.  Larry will be a staunch defender of both life and family. That’s the kind of commitment I know I can count on from Larry, and that’s the kind of commitment that you also can expect from him. 

 So, please join me in supporting my husband Larry D. Kump in the upcoming November 6th election.


Sincerely,


Cheryl L. Kump



P. S.: Remember and please vote for Larry D. Kump on Tuesday, November 6th (or use the “early voting” option at the county election office, which  begins on Wednesday, October 24th).
 And, as Larry always says, “May God bless you all real good!”.

What about Automated Camera Traffic Fines?

  Recently, some elected and wanna-be elected local and county officials have proposed that West Virginia rescind our law prohibiting automatic speed camera traffic ticket fines.

  However, as I have repeatedly and persistently proclaimed, "Orwellian" mass surveillance is not an effective or prudent remedy for traffic problems. (George Orwell is the author of the grim "1984" novel about intrusive and abusive government). 
 Other state and local jurisdictions also have been running away from the terrible practice of automated traffic camera fines.
 Nevertheless, some of our neighboring local governments in the State of Maryland continues and even is expanding this practice, causing a few folks hereabouts to want to go and do likewise.
  Fortunately, there is little or no interest by the West Virginia State Legislature, to repeal our Mountaineer prohibition of automated traffic camera fines.
 While the United States Supreme Court has yet to make a definitive ruling about the Constitutionality of automated traffic camera fines), many jurisdictions  throughout the nation are abandoning this horrific government motorist harassment and money grab.
 (You can check out the latest information and research about automated traffic camera fines via "Google".)
 Meanwhile, let's lay this awful idea to rest, and avoid the spectacle of automated traffic camera fines being our "Welcome to West Virginia" message and greeting.

Me?


 I'm just grateful that  our West Virginia lawmakers have much more sense than some officials in Maryland,


and have wisely prohibited the use of speed cameras in the Mountaineer State, at least for now.

This Jones boy likes Larry!

"My vote will be for Larry Kump.
Larry is a long-time resident of Berkeley county with past experience in the State Legislature.
Though some might think new blood is good, good experience is also good! Larry is financially and politically conservative, but understands the value of being Independent.
His hands are not tied by party planks, nor is he beholden to strict party donors.
He is willing to, and in the past, was recognized for his innovative policies and for reaching across party lines to actually get work done!
And anyone that thinks more hard liners are what we need, all you have to do is look at the wonderful lovefest of DC to know just how productive things are there.
During last year’s Hedgesville Heritage festival, Hedgesville’s own residents asked him to run again!
Please join me in voting for Larry Kump!
-Greg Jones "

Betty boosts Larry!

"Larry D, Kump served in West Virginia as Delegate from 2010 through 2014, and has great knowledge in serving our state.


Larry is a true conservative and deserves to be our delegate in the 2018 Election.


Larry believes in God, family, and holds conservative values close to his heart. 


He believes in keeping taxes low, in religious liberty, in the value of life, and the right to bear arms. 


He is endorsed by many conservative groups. 


Let’s keep West Virginia conservative and vote for the right person – Larry D. Kump!


- Bettv DeHaven"
