My name’s Christopher Phares, and I’m running for 2nd District Magistrate. A West Virginia native, I was born in Thomas, grew up and went to school in Elkins and received my B.A. in English at WVU. I served two years in Americorps writing grants, worked with middle and high school students for several years at The Old Brick Playhouse, and am now in the beer business at Mountain State Brewing Company and living in Thomas.
As Magistrate I’ll not only be fair and impartial, upholding our laws, but I’ll also uphold the U.S. Constitution, the TRUE law of the land. I believe your rights are God Given, and therefore, can never be taken. The Constitution is NOT a “living document” that can be altered and changed at will.
As a lifetime NRA member I wholeheartedly submit that your 2nd Amendment is NON-NEGOTIABLE and I fully supported Tucker county becoming one of the first sanctuary counties in West Virginia. I’m also an advocate for business and private property rights. What you do with YOUR property is YOUR business. So long as you’re not damaging or infringing on someone else’s property or violating decency laws, the nanny state has zero jurisdiction dictating how you use YOUR land that YOU own and worked hard and paid for with blood sweat and tears.
I moved back to Tucker County eleven years ago because it’s a beautiful, safe and tightly knit community, and I aim to keep it that way. As Magistrate I’ll focus your taxpayer dollars on mitigating major crimes like child abuse, armed robbery, home invasion, domestic violence, animal cruelty and keep hard drugs like meth, heroin, OxyContin and Fentanyl (an EXTREMELY lethal drug) out of our community to protect Tucker County’s most precious asset; our youth! Therefore, I’ll set the bail to the maximum amount, during an arraignment.
However, when it comes to smaller infractions and misdemeanors, we’re all human and we make mistakes. Lord knows I’ve made plenty, and I will always do my best to take that into account. Thanks for your vote everyone, and God Bless!
