      West Virginia state residents are furious after nearly 290 million dollars was giving to Bill Gates and Form Energy. The West Virginia State legislator recently passed HB 2882 leaving many state residents angry and furious. The bill itself is designed to give $290 million to a company called Form Energy. 
      Many people took the social media blasting Deeds calling him Republican rhino and not a true conservative. Woodrum on the other hand, it was nothing more than business as usual. Woodrum recently came under fire after he wanted to implement a 1% sales tax for county commissioners. 
      Some representatives such as Delegate Todd A. Kirby Took to social media referring to his colleagues as rhinos. 

      Out of our local representatives Todd Longanacre was the only one who voted NO on this legislation.  On social media, he posted.

      But the reality of the matter is most Democrats in West Virginia know they don't stand a chance in winning election running as a Democrat. So most Democrats have switched to the Republican Party. As most Republican voters vote Republican, unaware that they are actually voting for Democrats who have infiltrated the Republican Party. The only way that we will be able to prevent this type of insanity and to stop future Democrat Rhinos is to vote in primary elections and put real conservatives on the Republican ticket.

      Me yesterday…urging my colleagues in the WV House of Delegates - to no avail - to think about the many ways we can better the lives of far more WV Citizens if we use budget surplus money differently.
      The overwhelming majority of the body instead voted to give unproven Green Energy the $ - a company is based in Boston Massachusetts.
      To the many tax paying WV businesses already here…my apologies.
      I, along with only approximately 25% of your WV House, voted NO in an attempt to stop this. Conservatives simply do not have the numbers at this time to stop this sort of socialism.

      Greenbrier Legislative Town Hall Hosts Debate on Volunteer Fire Department Funding and Taxes
      Earlier this evening, the Greenbrier Legislative Town Hall was held at Grace Bible Church. The town hall featured a heated debate on funding for the county's volunteer fire departments, taxes, and Amendment 2.
      One of the key concerns raised by the first responders present was the need for adequate funding for the county's volunteer fire departments. Many of the volunteers argued that they were struggling to maintain their equipment and facilities due to limited funding, and that this was affecting their ability to provide adequate services to the community.
      Taxes were also a hot topic at the town hall, with many residents expressing concern over Amendment 2. Several speakers argued that the tax burden was becoming too high for many residents, particularly those on fixed incomes.
      Despite the contentious issues under discussion, the town hall was praised as a great evening with good public debate. All the county commissioners were present, along with some other elected officials, and residents appreciated the opportunity to voice their concerns and hear from their elected representatives.
      Overall, the Greenbrier Legislative Town Hall provided a valuable platform for residents to discuss important issues facing the county and to engage in constructive debate with their elected representatives.
