The BobCast MOV

Bob Mercer, Tee West, and Rick Sawyer

We are The Heartbeat of the Mid-Ohio Valley. Based out of Wood County, West Virginia, our podcast is all about our fascinating history and the issues that affect Wood and Washington Counties and the entire Mid-Ohio Valley area. There is a lot going on in our community that most of our residents are unaware of, and we hope to generate in others as much pride in our community as we feel.

Reed Byers. Candidate for Cabell County Board of Education
From his website: Running for Cabell County Board of Education is my way of continuing to pay it forward. It is an opportunity to use my energy, passion, community organizing, and leadership skills to ignite action and drive positive change in the community. I believe that every child deserves to be loved and supported. I believe that the stronger our families are, the healthier our communities will be. We all must play an active role in building a shared vision for our future. Trust that every decision I will make that affects Cabell County will be made to support a healthy, thriving community. This means: • Doing more of what works, less of what doesn't, and being courageous enough to ask hard questions and reimagine the way we operate. • Making proactive investments that address the root causes of systemic issues, instead of reactively backpedaling to clean up shortsighted mistakes. • Reducing waste and incentivizing success. • Creating a welcoming culture that includes families and community members prioritizes encouraging and empowering youth. Reed's broad professional experience spans grant writing and evaluation, policy review, developing youth programs, non-profit and social impact consulting, creating curriculum, delivering trainings, facilitating community conversations, and directly serving youth and families as a recovery coach and race director. He has held over 10 positions with various Boards of Directors and committees, from the Chamber of Commerce to the Community Service Council and Boys and Girls Club, which speaks to his commitment to service and competency as an executive leader. His philanthropic efforts have helped raise over $50,000 for West Virginia communities and his tenacity for positive change has impacted thousands of people across Appalachia.His web presence:https://sites.google.com/view/votereedbyers/homehttps://www.facebook.com/votereedbyersEmail: info@votereedbyers.com

Meet the Candidates: S. Marshall Wilson, Candidate for WV Governor
S. Marshall Wilson is a Husband to a valiant Woman, a Dad to nine, a retired combat veteran US Army Infantry Officer, a former Christian missionary in the Peruvian Amazon, and a teacher. He served as a Delegate from south Berkeley County for two terms (2016-2020) and stood for election as Governor of West Virginia in 2020. Marshall earned an Executive Master of Arts in National Security Affairs from the Institute of World Politics in Washington, DC and teaches in the 'Military Operations' Master of Arts program at Liberty University. Marshall is a staunch advocate for the establishment of Constitutional governance in West Virginia to secure the Natural Rights of each individual citizen. He also studies, both formally and informally, philosophy, history, and current government operations to increase and improve his capabilities to strengthen the resolve and capabilities of citizens he serves. Marshall's intent is to reform the Executive Branch of West Virginia State Government to function according to its constitutional mandate and, so secure your Natural Rights and "the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity (descendants)." (US Constitution, Preamble) If you agree with the principles to which Marshall has sworn his life, and if you recognize the disaster of the repeated, ongoing, intentional failure of our government to serve those principles, please help us to establish Constitutional governance in West Virginia and so build a bastion of Liberty, Justice, Prosperity, and Security where our children can raise their children in freedom.Call him at (304) 702-0082Email: nfo@marshall4wv.comhttps://marshall4wv.com/home/https://marshall4wv.com/https://www.facebook.com/MarshallforWVhttps://twitter.com/marshall4wvgovhttps://www.instagram.com/marshall4wv https://www.youtube.com/c/MarshallForWVTaproot Podcast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJyG3...
