Campaign themes

Terry, in a comment about his recent appointment, said "One of the things that I want to bring to Charleston is I'm just a working man. I want to work for the people. I am not interested for working for special interests or the process or any party dispute. I am there for the people. I want to represent us West Virginians, especially southern West Virginians."[7]
