As the mountain state’s progressive PAC, we’re happy to announce our endorsement for Governor – Booth Goodwin!
Official statement from Regenerate WV Board of Directors on endorsement of Booth Goodwin for Governor:
Regenerate WV proudly endorses Booth Goodwin as our next Governor. Mr. Goodwin has dedicated his campaign and his career to the interests of everyday working people. He is pro-worker, pro-choice, and pro-child.
Mr. Goodwin is an innovator. While US Attorneys across the country were content to fill our prisons with low-level substance abusers, Mr. Goodwin saw a different path. He piloted successful diversion programs, so that folks could get treatment instead of incarceration; that also freed his office up to go up the food chain and prosecute the folks who were getting rich off our misery. He also started the nationally-recognized Handle With Care program, so that children who had witnessed or survived criminal activity could get the support they needed at school.
Finally, our state needs a governor who has the courage to take big, bold action. Mr. Goodwin has that courage. He has prosecuted corruption charges against political machines from his own party. And he was the first prosecutor in the nation to bring charges against a high-level coal executive for their responsibility in a mine disaster, and he won a conviction. No other candidate has shown this combination of progressive values, innovation, and fearlessness.
West Virginia’s judicial races are now non-partisan, but the clear progressive choice for our state Supreme Court is Darrell McGraw! Judicial races will be decided in the primary rather than general election, so be sure to get out and vote.
Today’s children are our future, so we’re happy to endorse Ric Cavender for Kanawha County Board of Education! We believe he’s the best choice to ensuring the progress of our children and thus our future.
