Voice in Charleston

Dear Editor:

A few months ago a group of us from Widmyer Elementary School wrote a petition regarding catastrophic increases that were proposed for our state PEIA health insurance. This was due to a huge deficit in funding. We reached out to many state agencies who would be affected by these changes.

We contacted Senator Charles Trump requesting his assistance to hand deliver our petitions to Governor Earl Ray Tomblin. Senator Trump took great interest in how these proposed changes would affect those of us with PEIA insurance. He took our petitions to the Governor and discussed our concerns with the Legislature during the special sessions.

We are very pleased with the results that our insurance has been significantly funded. We feel this is greatly due to the efforts of Senator Charles Trump being our voice in Charleston.
