“No one has done more to defend our jobs, our industry, and our West Virginia way of life than Patrick Morrisey as our attorney general” – West Virginia Coal Association President Bill Raney
Washington, D.C. – Bill Raney, President of the West Virginia Coal Association, wrote a column forThe Intelligencer explaining why he supports Patrick Morrisey and why Doug Reynolds would fail to protect West Virginia’s economy as attorney general:
“For the last four years, no one has done more to defend our jobs, our industry and our West Virginia way of life than Patrick Morrisey, as our Attorney General. On behalf of our coal industry, our managers and the best coal miners in the world, we have to do everything possible to be sure Patrick Morrisey is re-elected and will continue to serve as our Attorney General. The Obama administration has done nothing but brings negativity to our coal miners’ jobs and economic harm to our state. Attorney General Morrisey has mounted strong and fruitful legal initiatives to stop this war on coal and protect our people.
“While the presidential and gubernatorial races have taken up most of the limelight, our attorney general has been getting more than one-half of the states in this nation to join his efforts to stop the EPA’s assault on our coal and agricultural industries. Because of that, those of us who depend on the coal industry for our livelihood and as a means for remaining in West Virginia must recognize that this race for attorney general has enormous consequences for our state and its future.”
