West Virginia Farm Bureau Endorses Beth Walker for Supreme Court
Charleston, W.Va. – The West Virginia Farm Bureau announced today their political action committee has endorsed Beth Walker for Justice of the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia.
“This is an extremely important race for West Virginia,” said WVFB President Charles Wilfong. “Beth Walker is strong on business and her views parallel the values of Farm Bureau. She’s been endorsed by the West Virginia Business and Industry Council, the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce, and many other like-minded groups. We need someone with her wisdom and sense of fairness on our Supreme Court.”
Representing more than 23,000 members, the West Virginia Farm Bureau was founded in 1919 to provide leadership, education, information, training and economic services to county farm bureaus to enhance the quality of life for its members.
“I am honored to have the support of the Farm Bureau and West Virginia’s farmers for my candidacy for Justice of the Supreme Court of Appeals,” said Beth Walker. “We are working hard to earn the support of organizations like these who appreciate the importance of a fair, impartial and nonpolitical judiciary.”
As a result of recent changes made by the West Virginia Legislature, the nonpartisan election of Justice of the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia is scheduled for May 10, 2016, which is Primary Election Day. Unlike prior years, that will be the only day to vote in this race.
