Dear Sir or Madam,
Even if they are not excited about the candidates on the general-election ballot, Tucker Countians need to go to the polls to vote against Amendments No. 1, No. 2, and No. 4.
If approved (“ratified”) by state voters, these proposed amendments to the West Virginia Constitution would, respectively, weaken the independence of the judicial branch; threaten existing revenue streams to municipalities, county commissions, and county school boards; and undermine the state board of education.
These amendments would increase the existing power of the supermajority in the Legislature. This is the same supermajority that drafted the amendments.
As each day goes by, more Democrats, Republicans, and independents are announcing their opposition to one or more of these amendments.
For a much more detailed explanation of how these 3 amendments were drafted and how they might adversely affect West Virginians, please visit my website at www.thorntoncooper.com.
Election Day is November 8th. Please remember to vote “No” on 1, “No” on 2, and “No” on 4.
Thornton Cooper South Charleston, West Virginia
