Attack on Warner was unfair

I was appalled at the unfair attack on Delegate Bobbie Warner printed in your paper recently. Obviously, the letter-writer is not aware of how tirelessly our delegate works on behalf of Harrison County and our state.

I visit the Capitol regularly during the legislative session, and Ms. Warner is constantly working. While she cares for her elderly parents in Clarksburg and maintains constant communication with them when she is in Charleston, she does not miss committee meetings or sessions, and she is constantly aware of what is going on with the issues facing the Legislature.

A vanity plate is a way that she, as chair of House Roads and Transportation, can generate income for the Division of Highways. As a pro-lifer, she is well-aware that a pro-life license plate would be a big source of revenue.

Perhaps the letter-writer has some personal bias toward that position, but Ms. Warner invited pro-choice delegates to bring a bill to her committee and promised to put it on the agenda. Pro-abortion committee chairs refuse to run pro-life bills in their committees, but Del. Warner believes in freedom of speech and freedom of access to the political process for all.

If every district in West Virginia was as well represented as ours, the state would be in far better shape.

Thanks from MDA

Even the leprechauns are green with envy over Clarksburg's response to the Muscular Dystrophy Association's Shamrocks Against Dystrophy campaign. Many thanks to the thousands of people who donated to MDA and signed paper shamrocks in businesses in February and March.

Their generous participation in Shamrocks will help MDA continue to provide families affected by neuromuscular diseases in our community with valuable services.

As one of many who has a loved one affected by a neuromuscular disease, I'm genuinely grateful for the caring support of customers and employees at convenience stores, supermarkets, restaurants and other retailers in Clarksburg.

The 18th annual Shamrocks Against Dystrophy campaign raised more than $10 million nationally. These donations help MDA fund almost 400 research teams worldwide.

On behalf of the millions of Americans affected in some way by the more than 40 diseases covered by MDA, THANK YOU!
