Ben Salango on Principles & Values



Focused on public service rather than self-service

West Virginia needs a governor who is focused on public service rather than self-service. As a lawyer, I've always fought for the little guy and stood up against corruption and waste. As a county commissioner, I've worked to make the Kanawha Valley a better place for residents to live and work by diversifying the economy, supporting law enforcement and public safety, and helping small businesses.

Shouldn't have to sue governor to live in capital city

A lawsuit is pending before the West Virginia Supreme Court about the governor's lack of residency in the capital city. "I wasn't born wealthy. I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth," Salango said. "We need somebody with energy, somebody who is going to bring new ideas, somebody who is going to move West Virginia forward, not somebody you have to sue just to get them to show up to work."

Stop secret tax deals for public officials

As governor, Ben will end secret tax deals and tax breaks for public officials˙and˙their companies. He will force state officials to˙place their corporate assets in a blind˙trust˙and˙will˙ensure˙that all˙candidates˙for office˙are current on˙their˙state or local taxes.˙
