Reader: Candidate is energy policy expert

Second Congressional District voters have a clear choice on Nov. 3 to elect someone who will listen to all her constituents, hold in person town halls, not be beholding to outside corporate interests, and work for the many, not the few. That candidate is Cathy Kunkel!

Cathy is an energy policy expert and public advocate who cofounded Advocates for Safe Water following the 2014 Freedom Industries chemical spill in Charleston. She also cofounded Rise Up WV an organization that advocates for healthcare for all, quality public education, better services for those suffering from addiction and more. Cathy knows West Virginia could have an economy that works for all of us, but only if we come together and fight for it.

Her proposals range from fighting for working families and seniors, strengthening public education, scaling up treatment services to meet the ever growing opioid crisis, and ensuring our criminal justice system works for everyone not just the wealthy and well connected. As our representative in Washington, Cathy will always defend our American values, tackle the climate crisis head on, and work to transform our economy that has relied for decades on out of state corporations coming to West Virginia to extract wealth from out state and exploit our people.

Expanding broadband, working to ensure all West Virginians have safe drinking water, and encouraging investment in rural transportation, parks and recreational venues are also priorities for Cathy. She strongly supports the 2nd Amendment and will listen to all her constituents, not just the ones who share her ideas.
