As this year’s May 16 Primary Election approaches, the West Virginia Manufacturers Association through its Political Action Committee, the West Virginians for Manufacturing Jobs PAC, released its list of endorsements today. 

“West Virginia has seen massive political changes in recent years, and it is critical that we elect candidates that understand the importance of manufacturing in the Mountain State and its direct connection to the livelihoods of West Virginians,” said Bill Bissett, President of the West Virginia Manufacturers Association. “We believe that by electing these endorsed candidates, West Virginia will be in the best position to continue future economic development and create opportunities that not only allow our citizens to remain here but also attract new residents to our state.”
