I'm pretty sure Clark Barnes has had a business in Grant County for many years so why would it be so odd to want to live there & serve his customers needs in politics also?

Sounds to me like they all just sat around and didn't really get anything accomplished except eat...

Also, Barnes needs voted out. He's a sell out and also he has no idea whats best for this area or state.

He was going to move to Grant County to be able to run for the 1st district US House Rep. Some allegiance to Elkins huh?

Also, I've lived in a right-to-work state before. It should be called "right to treat employes however you feel like" states. Literally, I lost vacation, sick leave, and personal time because I was unable to take time off from my position before I moved. Right to work means they don't have to pay you that money that you've earned.

Also, it weakens unions by making it difficult for new unions to form and making it basically a race to lower wages, fewer benefits, and less workplace rights.

The decline of the unions has been the decline of the middle class in America.
