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.

Whom Do You Trust ?

(A Letter to the Editor)

Dear Editor,

The 2013 Legislative Session at the West Virginia State House was not yet completed, when another delegate quietly approached me at my desk in the chamber of the West Virginia House of Delegates.

He asked me to join with other state legislators and sign my name to a letter of endorsement for the election of an incumbent candidate in the 2014 Republican Primary.

I firmly declined, explaining that, in my opinion, political party officials and legislators should resist the temptation to become advocates for any candidate vying for their political party's nomination.

Instead, let's trust the judgement of the voters within their respective political parties.



Yours for better governance (and fewer political bosses),

Delegate Larry D. Kump
