Meet Paula Jean Swearengin, progressive Justice Democrat, also known as Coal Miner’s Daughter. She is challenging Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), the Senate’s most conservative Democrat, in the 2018 West Virginia Democratic Primary.
“In West Virginia, we are seeing the world move past us. We are watching an energy revolution from the sidelines. What is the response from our leadership? They work to protect corporate profits and leave miners in the lurch fighting for basics like health care. It’s time we replace them. The natural hospitality and strength of our community bonds are being strained. We are watching pill mills take the place of steel mills. We are watching opioids and lack of opportunity destroy our communities.
The best resource in the Appalachian mountains is the people on them not the black rock in them. We are determined, hard working, and smart. When we band together, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish. I’m ready to fight for my family, my neighbors and my state to deliver the prosperous, healthy future West Virginia deserves. The legacy of this great state cannot be burying our own miles deep in coal mines, it must be building a sustainable future for generations to come.”
