State of the Counties Address Presented at the 2015 Conference of Counties

It is a wonderful honor to be given the opportunity to speak to each of you this morning. Again, I welcome all of you to the 2015 Conference of Counties which has been organized by Patti and the staff of WVACo. I want to thank the Association of West Virginia Assessors for giving me the opportunity to represent them as President of this Association.

Many of you deserve a lot of credit for the support you show for our agenda that enhances our ability for elected officials and our counties to advance into the 21st century and to be prepared to serve those who chose us for these offices. Our Counties and the State of West Virginia have faced many problems in the past and we will certainly face many more in the future, but we also realize we must be prepared to deal with these problems through civil discourse, together as a well-organized and forward looking group of concerned office holders.

Generations of Clay Countians will benefit from it.”
