Issue:  Tourism

  Neutral   Oppose


Position Statement:  I support increasing tourism in the state.

Description of Position: 
Tourism brings a more diverse tax base to the economy. With West Virginia s natural resources we have a lot to offer. Whitewater rafting, ATV trails and our State Parks offer great opportunities for people to enjoy recreational activities. Highway projects will allow easier access to some parts of the state that need the economic boost. The plan is simple, begin with highway project improvements to create jobs and work to build more tourist attractions within the state.

Statistics show that tourism is on the rise in recreation and entertainment. About 15% growth over the last few years. Lodging and food service is showing growth as well. While mining and manufacturering is declining. Tourism keeps the State Parks busy with cabin rentals and lodge accommodations. Tourism is good for the state and IT'S TIME to build the roads to take advantage of the state's resources.
