Dave Hall has announced his candidacy for the West Virginia House of Delegates.
Hall, a Democrat, is a retired Marshall County educator. He was a science teacher at Union Junior High for 23 years and a principal at Cameron High School for nine years.
He most recently served Marshall County as a board of education member for eight years.
"I am extremely proud to have worked with and for the people of Marshall County for 40 years and to have positively impacted approximately 4,000 students and 8,000 parents as a teacher and principal," he said.
As a school board member, Hall is proud of being instrumental in securing the voters' approval of a $27.9 million bond levy covering 13 projects, and being able to expand that amount through additional sources of funding to provide approximately $70 million in facility improvements at no additional cost to the taxpayer.
Hall said this is a tremendous return on tax dollars, while providing hundreds of construction jobs at prevailing wages for the workers in our area.
"We were good stewards of the taxpayer dollar," he said.
Hall, who has a bachelors degree in biology comprehensive and a masters degree in secondary school administration, said his science and management knowledge will help him make decisions concerning eco-backlash issues the state faces.
Hall said, "finding that balanced approach between providing good paying jobs and having clean water to drink, fresh air to breathe, and safe land on which to live is at issue in our great state."
