Bob Henry Barber is a Mountain Party candidate for Governor of West Virginia in the 2011 elections.


Currently working as the Major Gifts Officer at West Virginia's Glenville State College, Bob Henry Barber also a mosaic artist who sells his artwork as "Memory Pieces". Barber has also produced an album of Appalachian themed holiday mosaics, the Candy Cane Train.


Barber describes himself as a populist and an environmentalist. Addressing the Marcellus shale, he backed "green" energy sources and endorsed creating new taxes to pay for increased regulation of drilling. He also argued that a better environment would lead to more tourism.

Speaking on West Virginia's finances, he said, "Even though I’m a liberal in the Mountain Party, I’m as tight as the bark on a tree."[1] Barber agreed with many other candidates that federal funding was shrinking and likely to continue doing so, increasing the need for local fund sources. He came out against taxes on such things as vehicles, which disproportionately impacted low income citizens, and admitted he backed taxes on "vices".
