Kanawha County Board of Education
Ryan White

The Chamber interviewed candidates for the Board of Education and believes there are   several credible candidates on the ballot. We encourage our membership to explore those candidates.

In making this endorsement, the Chamber intends to distinguish Ryan White as a candidate who would bring community leadership experience with Generation Charleston, a background in law, public policy and small business management, and a track record of advocacy on regional and state education issues to the Board.

In making its legislative endorsements, the Charleston Chamber invited candidates to complete questionnaires and share their views on a range of business, economic and community development issues.

“By endorsing a candidate, the Charleston Chamber believes that he or she will be a strong and effective partner on policies to advance Kanawha County and West Virginia. It does not mean that we agree with or endorse every position held by the candidate,” explained Chamber President Matt Ballard.

“We will pursue constructive dialogue with all candidates — those we endorsed and those who did not receive our endorsement in this particular election — on meaningful solutions to the challenges facing our region and state.”
