Navy Dave Weighs In

Dear Larry:

These days it is a rare, but professional, pleasure to support any candidate for political office in whom one has the utmost confidence.
 Not only am I fully satisfied with his legislative results, but his personal character (indeed his entire attitude toward life & political reality in our state) offer agreement, cooperation, & continuing success for all --including those special ideas which he offers so often & so innovatively himself. I can only wish there were more candidates in both parties I could support with the complete confidence.
 I take personal pleasure in adding my name to the lengthy & growing lists of individuals & solid organizations supporting my WV State Delegate, Larry D. Kump.

Proudly . . .

David L. Woods, Phd, Adjunct Professor at Marshall University & Captain, USNR (Ret.)-- from "The Woods", Hedgesville, WV
