WV Contractors Endorse Beth Walker for Supreme Court
Press release from Walker for Supreme Court Campaign
Charleston, W.Va. – West Virginia has made significant strides in the past year with regards to reforming its once predatory legal climate, opening up regulatory barriers to promote job creation and by making significant reforms to its labor laws. These types of changes have only been possible through a newly elected, motivated and ambitious legislative majority that is truly vested in bettering the lives of all West Virginians.
To ensure that these reforms are not undermined by an activist Supreme Court of Appeals, it is imperative that our state’s highest judicial body continue down the path of progress with a composition of members that are impartial, understand and respect the State’s constitution and are not beholden to any special interest groups. For these reasons, along with countless others, the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABCWV) are placing its member’s support behind Beth Walker.
Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) is a national construction industry trade association representing nearly 21,000 chapter members. Founded on the merit shop philosophy, ABC and its 70 chapters help members develop people, win work and deliver that work safely, ethically, profitably and for the betterment of the communities in which ABC and its members work.
“Beth Walker has shown throughout her career a dedication to legal objectivity, fair and impartial courts and the utmost respect for the laws that guide our state’s businesses and citizens. These characteristics are critical in a Supreme Court Justice, and our membership is more than confident that she will fulfill them,” said ABCWV President Bryan Hoylman. “For entirely too long our Judicial system in West Virginia has been at the unpredictable mercy of a court bound by special interests. We need to restore credibility and faith in this branch of government, and Beth Walker is the only candidate on the ballot capable to getting us there,” Hoylman continued.
The Board of Directors at ABCWV unanimously agreed to endorse Beth Walker for the May 10th Election.
