Your letter to the editor this morning in today's edition (Friday, August 20th, 2010) of the Martinsburg Journal was a wonderful morning surprise for me.
"Kump is a candidate on whom you can count" brought back those memories of when you and I were testifying before the Maryland House of Delegates Appropriations Committee and you first urged me to be a candidate for election. That's when I laughed and said that my residence and heart belongs to West Virginia.
Your friendship and loyal advocacy on my behalf still means a great deal to me.
