I will emphasize increasing the number of settlements of consumer cases, which have plummeted under the current AG. I will promote consumer protection against medical debt and student loan debt, and enforce antitrust laws to ensure fair competition for businesses. I will investigate wage theft, and worker misclassification, to fight fraud in the workplace, and help us to thrive.
We must protect healthcare coverage for West Virginians. As AG, I will remove our state from the dangerous lawsuit that threatens people with pre-existing conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, COPD, diabetes, etc. I will fight corruption, combat the overdose crisis by supporting long-term recovery, and enforce laws to protect workers, seniors, small businesses and consumers from fraud.
I've secured millions in complex class actions for hundreds of citizens. I conducted detailed oversight of public agencies for Senator Byrd, and litigated extensively before administrative agencies---key functions for the Attorney General. I've handled many matters of public concern: civil rights, school funding, Freedom of Information, Open Meetings, and served as president of the West Virginia Employment Lawyers Association.
