New leadership hopefully means new direction

Posted: Updated:

As the members of the House of Delegates begin the process of selecting new leadership, let's hope they do what's right and pick someone who truly wants to move this state forward.
For far too long, the special interests – not the people – have held sway in the House, seemingly doing all they can to keep us rooted in the past. 

We have so much potential, but so many of our elected leaders don't have the courage to let us charge boldly into tomorrow. 
We can either stick with the tired – and unsuccessful policies – of yesterday, or we embrace the future and do real work to make a better West Virginia.
