"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.
"I know Lissa will make a great Delegate and do what's right, not only for her neighbors and her district, but for all of West Virginia."
Mary Ann Claytor has endorsed Lissa Lucas for WV House of Delegates, District 7, in 2018. "We both want to make this state a better place," Claytor explains.
"I truly believe Lissa Lucas is one of the smartest and most principled persons I have ever met. I will help her in any way that I can," Pritt explained.
