Candidate touted for state office

We write in support of Steve Foster’s election to the West Virginia Senate for the 11th District.

All of us have worked closely with Steve in various capacities. His hard work and creative thinking have paid big dividends in Upshur County. His efforts have expanded employment and increased our tax base.

Steve is a proven leader, having been president of the West Virginia Economic Development Council and the Hardwood Alliance Zone. He has been an active participant in the West Virginia Polymer Alliance Zone and the West Virginia Manufacturers Association. He currently serves as chairman of the Robert C. Byrd Corridor H Authority.

Steve is an active leader in Chapel Hill United Methodist Church, a past president of the Buckhannon Rotary, a member of the Board at St. Joseph’s Hospital, and involved in many other activities too numerous to mention. His dedication to his community earned him the title of “Citizen of the Year” in 2005 from the Buckhannon-Upshur Chamber of Commerce.

Experience matters. On May 13, please vote for a proven leader for the West Virginia Senate. Vote for Steve Foster.
