West Virginians for Manufacturing Jobs Political Action Committee (WVMJ PAC), in consultation with the West Virginia Manufacturers Association (WVMA), has announced its endorsement of Governor Jim Justice for reelection in the 2020 General Election.
“Governor Justice took swift action in response to the COVID-19 crisis. He recognized the necessity of manufacturing as an essential industry in response to COVID, which allowed West Virginia’s manufacturers to respond to critical needs during these challenging times,” said WVMA President Rebecca McPhail. “He quickly assembled a responsive crisis team, and they all have worked tirelessly to adapt to the changing landscape of the pandemic.”
“Today is National Manufacturing Day, and it’s an honor to receive this endorsement on the day we shine a spotlight on our manufacturers, all the hardworking West Virginians in manufacturing, and the positive impact our manufacturers have on communities all across West Virginia. Thank you for this endorsement and the great things our manufacturers are doing,” said Governor Jim Justice.
“The leadership of Governor Justice is what we need to move West Virginia forward in the coming years … We appreciate your strong leadership through unprecedented times in the Mountain State and look forward to working with you during your second term as Governor,” concluded McPhail.
Under Governor Justice’s leadership, West Virginia welcomed job growth and expansion from large and small companies, including Hino Motors, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Facebook, MPLX, Pietro Fiorentini, Northrup Grumman, Proctor & Gamble, Pratt and Whitney, Hyperloop One, and Great Barrel Company to name a few.
