Dedication

This website is devoutly dedicated to all of Larry's friends and associates, both early and late, who have influenced and mentored him. However, it also should be noted that, being who they are, a majority of them have been late most of the time.

Just FYI & for the Record

The West Virginia Republican Party is hosting an executive committee meeting on Saturday, July 23rd at the Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown, WV.


During that meeting, they will be considering a proposal by Republican Party Leaders to have a convention to elect many of West Virginia's delegates to the National Republican Convention, instead of a Primary Election to chose all of West Virginia's Republican Delegates for the 2012 Republican National Convention.


I am adamantly opposed to a convention and only will support a Primary Election for the election of all of West Virginia's Republican National Convention Delegates for the 2012 Presidential election.


Delegate Larry D. Kump, R-Morgan & Berkeley Counties.

Who Should Pay?

A Letter to the Editor of the Morgan Messenger printed on Wednesday, July 20th, 2011:

Dear Editor,

Your recent (July 13th, www.morgan-messenger.com) editorial lamenting the expense of political party conventions to taxpayers strikes a chord deep in my heart.

Political party primaries are a huge improvement over political party conventions, because political primaries give a direct vote for candidates to the voters, and political conventions do not.

Nevertheless, you are absolutely correct in proposing that taxpayers should not bear the expense of financing political party primaries.

Delegate Larry D. Kump
