West Virginia Independent Insurance Agents PAC Endorse Beth Walker For Supreme Court

Charleston, W.Va. – The Independent Insurance Agents of West Virginia announced their political action committee has endorsed Beth Walker for Justice of the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia.

“After a significant review of the candidates in this race, it was clear to our members that Beth Walker will be an independent voice for the people and businesses of our state. She has the legal experience and judicial philosophy that will allow all parties before our state’s highest court to have a fair shake.” said David Stacy, President of the IIAWV. “Beth Walker is the only candidate that will continue to improve the judicial landscape in the Mountain State.”

The Independent Insurance Agents of West Virginia, Inc. (IIAWV) is West Virginia’s oldest and largest insurance trade association. IIAWV represents more than 1,800 licensed independent insurance agents whose primary emphasis is on property and casualty insurance. Independent agencies range in size from a family-owned one-office firm to a statewide multi-office firm. IIAWV is a member of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of American (IIABA).

“I am honored to have the support of independent insurance agents in our state,” said Beth Walker. “We are working hard to earn the support of organizations and individuals like this 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.
