More on HB 2698 (Virginia Bound?)

 As a proud and independent Mountaineer, my purpose in introducing HB 2698 (Advisory Citizen Referendum on the Eastern Panhandle seceding from West Virginia and joining Virginia) is to take decisive and deliberate action to bring more attention on lifting our citizens out of poor wages, scarce jobs, and reduced personal liberty.
 West Virginia has abundent talent and natural resources, but our state government policies stifles our prosperity and freedom.
 According to West Virginia University Economics Professor Russ Sobel ("Unleashing Capitalism: Why Prosperity Stops at the West Virginia Border), we could and should do much better.
 I agree.
That's why it's time for not only the Eastern Panhandle but all of West Virginia to stop competing with Mississippi for last place in our quality of life.

  1. Larry, you already understand the politics of WV, and, as a junior legislator, that's amazing. Your name is out there, and others know who you are and who you represent. This 2698 is a real attention-getter, and anyone who can't see the intent is missing the King of Hearts in the deck.

    Thanks for all you are doing, and will do for the Eastern Panhandle.

  2. Delegate Kump,

    I heard your interview with my friend Tom Roten of WVHU Radio.

    I really enjoyed it and hope you continue to inform us

    in the western part of the state on your progress.

    I do stand with you in support of your House Bill 2698.

    I hope we don't loose you to Virginia!

    We could use you as Governor.....h"ERR".

    Thank you for your bold leadership and remember...

    Once a Mountaineer Always a Mountaineer
