Salango right for the job
We have a candidate for governor that Wood Countians can enthusiastically support. Ben Salango is that candidate.
Ben is a West Virginia success story. He is a product of our public school system and a graduate of West Virginia University and the WVU College of Law who paid his own way through undergraduate and law school.
In his first term on the Kanawha County Commission, Ben led the effort to develop the spectacular Shawnee Sports Complex that has brought jobs and tremendous economic benefits to the region. He worked to secure twelve weeks of paid family leave for all county employees and made sure all seniors in Kanawha County could access a hot meal. He has innovative ideas to create jobs, which he proved he can do in Kanawha County.
As a retired educator, I am especially impressed with Ben’s strong commitment to our public schools and the critical task of preparing the next generation for the challenges in the global economy.
Ben’s got the right stuff and he merits all of our support on June 9.
