Governor Justice Issues Statement on Road Bond Referendum

8/22/2017

CHARLESTON, WV - This is a not a Democrat, Republican or Independent issue. It’s about jobs, safety, your roads and bridges, and hope for our state. The overwhelming majority of our elected leaders, along with myself, are in favor of the Road Bond Referendum and providing our citizens with safe roads and bridges.

ATTENTION: All West Virginians---The Road Bond Referendum is not going to raise your taxes at all­---ZERO. What we are really voting for on Oct. 7 is whether or not we want to create tens of thousands of good paying jobs and launch our state into an economic recovery, and put us on a pathway to prosperity, that will be remembered forevermore.

The funding mechanisms to support this bonding have already been put in place by the Legislature.

Our roads and bridges are crumbling in West Virginia and we’ve got to modernize our transportation system. At the same time we also need to make sure the people get what they pay for and that is an effective, efficient, accountable road system---and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.
