Cory was born and raised in Canaan Valley, WV. He grew up on a cattle farm and was raised with a strong work ethic. A family-owned ski business and restaraunt fostered a love for people, the outdoors and nourishing food. Cory currently resides in Dryfork, WV, on two acres with his daughter, their dog and cat, a vegetable garden, and a lovely view of Dolly Sods Wilderness.
Cory has been a consistent advocate for economic, education, and labor reforms that will help everyday West Virginians. A small business owner and licensed massage therapist for 15 years, he is an active member of his local community: the treasurer for two local nonprofits, volunteering and fundraising for the local Montessori learning center, coaching soccer, working on grants for community enrichment, playing music in a couple bands, and recently becoming a board member of the Tucker County Development Authority.
Supporting progressive candidates is an investment in our future. We have to counter the ravaging effects of apathy and energize people to engage in their lawmaking process. While it’s always easier to point the finger, we the People must own our share and find common ground to meet basic needs as a society and as communities.
This initial fundraising goal is to pay for a professional website and graphic design for union-made campaign materials. Cory is merely one candidate in a slate of motivated Progressives running for State House and State Senate in WV. I hope you’ll consider supporting us as we attempt to repair and reform our broken systems to benefit the citizens of WV.
