OUR VISION

Our vision is for West Virginia to be the best place in the world to live, work, and raise a family – no matter who you are. That means…

Great education and jobs

First-class support for children, from birth to adulthood – regardless of race, class, or parentage; schools that create a culture of entrepreneurship and life-long learning; debt-free higher education; and a diverse, nimble economy where if you work hard you can provide for your family

Healthy communities

Eating healthy and getting active are the norm; affordable and appropriate medical and preventative care; we choose treatment over incarceration; and welcoming communities, with pollution-free air, water, and land

A government that invests in people and people who invest in government

A strong infrastructure that ensures a diverse, dynamic economy; a government that encourages and rewards work; leading the nation in voter turnout, political activity, and everyday people running for office; and a corruption-free, waste-free government that is responsive to citizen leaders
