Keep Reminding the Governor!

Help us remind Governor Wise that raising the weight limits on coal trucks is unacceptable! Come to the Capitol on Thursday, September 5 at 3:15 PM for a press conference in the People's Room at the Secretary of State's office.

After the press conference, please come to a memorial service in Hernshaw at 5:30 PM to mark the one-year anniversary of the coal truck accident that killed Mary Justice and Jimmy Nelson on Route 94. The family will place a wreath at a memorial marker near the accident site. From Charleston take I-77 to the Marmet exit. Make a right off the exit. Hernshaw is approximately 5 miles from the exit. You can park at the Church of the Nazarene and walk to the memorial service.

For those of you who want to e-mail Governor Wise on the overweight coal truck issue, you can do so at:  Or you can call at 558-2000 or 1-888-438-2731 (toll-free).

For more info., call Julie or Linda at 304-346-5891.
