For too long, Berkeley County sent radical legislators to Charleston who were ignored, marginalized and unable to deliver for our area. Despite our immense growth over the last 20 years, Berkeley County was unable to move legislation or see a return on our tax dollars – in fact, counties far smaller than Berkeley were receiving 2-3 times the amount of grant money and economic assistance. That’s why Jason first decided to run for the House.
Jason was elected to the House of Delegates in 2012. During his tenure, Jason authored and passed several major pieces of legislation, including the historic bill raising West Virginia's minimum wage. In addition, Jason served as Vice-Chair of the House Small Business, Entrepreneurship & Economic Development Committee.
Jason sponsored or co-sponsored over 18 pieces of legislation into law – including historic legislation aimed at increasing the minimum wage, allowing Martinsburg to enter into home rule, and providing businesses with a loan system to keep their doors open during emergencies.
Jason is a lifelong resident of Berkeley County, graduating from Martinsburg High School. Deciding to stay in the rapidly-growing Berkeley County area, Jason is a successful small business owner. In addition to having served our community in the House of Delegates, Jason is a longtime board member of the Shenandoah Women's Center.
Thank you wanting to get involved and send Jason back to Charleston! Our campaign can't be won without the hard work and support of people like you. We hope that you will consider signing-up!Sign up
