Hi. I'm Chad Lovejoy and I'm running for re-election to West Virginia House of Delegates in the newly created 27th District, which includes parts of Cabell and Wayne Counties.
As your Delegate, I have supported legislation that seeks to move our State forward and worked hard to build relationships, seeking consensus and collaboration -- avoiding the gridlock of partisan politics.
The Huntington area is my Home -- where I grew up and now raise my family and own a small business. I've spent my life enjoying the blessings of this community and my entire career fighting for its working families and small businesses when they find themselves in hard times.
I believe that some things are worth fighting for, and the future of our Home is first and foremost. It is a privilege to be an advocate in Charleston for this very special community, working to make sure that all of our kids will have the best opportunities, including that of coming (and staying) Home to raise a family of their own.
Despite the many, serious challenges that we face -- a changing economy, aging infrastructure, lagging education system and a drug abuse epidemic -- we are a community who can, and has, overcome. We always rally together and never forget who we are or where we came from. We never lose Hope. I want to continue as your Delegate and to take our Hope into the West Virginia Capitol.

Byrd Biotechnology Center on 3rd Avenue.Read more
