Why do so many public servants forget the very fact that they are public servants? They were elected to represent their constituents and should act always with their best interests in mind.
If you are looking for a true public servant, and not the run of the mill politician, then I urge you to cast your vote for Larry D. Kump.
I have known Larry for more than 20 years and can attest to his moral integrity, honesty, and genuine love and concern for our state and country. He is a true patriot.
At a time when he could be enjoying retirement, he has chosen to serve the citizens of West Virginia.
Larry D. Kump will be an excellent Delegate in the WV legislature. If you are tired of "politics as usual", then Larry is your candidate.
