Stephen Smith visits Richwood

Richwood, WV – Stephen Smith, a 2020 Democratic candidate for Governor of West Virginia, visited Richwood, West Virginia yesterday evening, where he held one of his many “Town Hall” events.

During the “Nicholas County Town Hall,” Smith’s main objective was to explain to the people the lies that they get fed from the state government on a daily basis — that West Virginia is poor, will never compete, and will always be the same. Mr. Smith, however, explained to the people that such assumptions are merely false assumptions often portrayed by the state government.

He stated that there is one reason why West Virginia’s economy is in the shape that it’s currently in: Corporations and monopolization. He referred to these Corporatists as the “Good Old Boys.” Smith explained that our economy is weak due to the state government preferring to work for out-of-state corporations, rather than working for the people of West Virginia.

Along with that, he let the people know that West Virginia has many opportunities to be as great as it once was.

As governor, Smith said, he will cut all ties that our state government has with out-of-state corporations and he’ll make sure that small businesses in our state thrive.

He stated that the government must begin within the local communities in the state of West Virginia. By doing that, we’ll begin to compete much more and we’ll also witness an influx of working-class people, teachers, and businesses coming back to West Virginia.

Stephen Smith is running a grassroots-like campaign, which is focused on supporting local communities and working-class citizens. His “Nicholas County Town Hall” was a great event and opened the eyes of many people, such as myself.

The next “Nicholas County Town Hall” event has yet to be announced, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
