Recently, a candidate for Governor took a tour of Tucker County. The candidate, Stephen Smith, toured the Family Resource Network, Cortland Acres, many small businesses and local residents. The tour finished up with an engaging town hall at Cotrill Opera House that attracted over 50 residents.
Beyond an emphasis on learning, the trip to Tucker County is what Smith’s team calls a movement-building tour. At each stop, County Captains host a Town Hall, where attendees will have a chance to highlight local issues, learn more about the campaign, and sign up to volunteer.
Already more than 80 County Captains are signed on to lead county-wide organizing efforts. More than 32 Constituency Teams are forming, and 23 candidates have expressed interest in running on a WV Can’t Wait slate come 2020.
