PERSONAL STATEMENT: I’m a coal miner’s daughter and granddaughter. America was built on the backs of Appalachians. Like so many, my family paid a steep price for coal. I lost many of my family members to cancer and black lung. West Virginia’s most valuable resource is our people. We are determined, hard-working and smart. When we band together, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish. I’m ready to fight for my family, my neighbors and my state to deliver the prosperous, healthy future that we deserve.
