Campaign Update: Thrasher issues comment on W.Va. Ethics issue on CVB, Greenbrier

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Republican candidate for governor Woody Thrasher on Friday issued the following comment on a West Virginia Ethics Commission request from two Greenbrier Valley Airport Authority members:

“Once again, Jim Justice is treating Greenbrier County and the state of West Virginia as a subsidiary of Justice enterprises.

Obviously, this governor is still calling the shots at the businesses he refuses to put in a blind trust. It’s evident in where he spends his time, which is not traveling the state to get ahead of our issues, as he wants us to believe, and it’s certainly not at the Governor’s Mansion. He’s more worried about propping up his businesses than preserving our existing businesses or recruiting new ones.

“We should revisit and strengthen the current ethics regulations to help our Ethics Commission protect those of us who pay our taxes from his constant conflicts of interest and self-dealing fleecing of our state.”
