Lissa Lucas – WV House – 2018

Dear West Virginians, I Double Dog Dare You (Open letter)

It helps corporations to have their bought political mouthpieces incite regular folks to blame the other party, whichever "other" party that might be. That's because the constant bitter fighting keeps people from being able to recognize and process who's really calling the shots. The distraction allows more and more of our money to be funneled to already-wealthy corporate execs.

AFL-CIO endorses Lissa Lucas

"The AFL-CIO is not a partisan organization," Lissa points out, noting that state teachers showed how West Virginia's long tradition of a strong labor movement "represents workers who are Democrats, Republicans, members of third parties, and members of no party. Yet the fight for fair pay and worker protection is often placed in a partisan framework, dividing us where we most need to be united."

Lissa knows there's a huge difference between supporting coal miners and coal barons, and she understands that miners and mining communities deserve better.

The HOLLER Heard ’round the World

That's what I thought I knew about Auburn, WV, from my research: there would be infrastructure issues. So I had expectations of what I'd probably hear. But sometimes your expectations are just WRONG.

CTA: Tell your State Senators “Fight for our property rights!”

Call to action! Contact your state senators and demand they oppose HB 4268, #ForcedPooling, no matter what new name the industry wants to use for it. Our representatives should be working for WVians, not #lobbyists and #corporations!”

Tell House Republicans NO Forced Leasing (HB 4268)

Please contact your own delegate first (see how to find and contact your delegate here), then the Delegates below. Delegate Erikka Storch-- (304) 340-3378 Delegate Patrick Martin-- (304) 340-3123 Delegate Zack Maynard-- (304) 340-3152 Delegate Jason Harshbarger-- (304) 340-3195 Delegate John Shott-- (304) 340-3252 Delegate Joshua Higgenbotham-- (304) 340-3118 Delegate Tom Fast-- (304) 340-3170

I was dragged out of the WV House Chambers because I listed Delegates’ campaign donors.

Allow me to point out that if Delegates genuinely think that my talking about who their campaign donors are---and how much they're receiving from corporate lobbyists/corporate PACs---is an ad hominem attack... then they should be refusing those donations.
