Gary Howell wins endorsement of West Virginia Family Foundation

Gary Howell, candidate for the State Senate in the 14th District, has won the endorsement of the West Virginia Family Foundation PAC, based on his pro-family positions on a variety of topics. Howell was notified of the endorsement on Wednesday.

In announcing the endorsement, Kevin McCoy, WVFF PAC chairman, said, “We commend Gary Howell for his favorable response to our family vales questionnaire and for his strong commitment to protecting tradition family values.”

McCoy added, “Our family values questionnaire is an excellent tool to evaluate a candidate's commitment to those values our organization and its members hold dear. We are please to endorse his candidacy and look forward to working with him in the near future.”

West Virginia Family Foundation is a conservative grassroots organization which seeks to promote pro-family values within the state of West Virginia. Howell said he was honored by the WVFF’s support.

“West Virginia families share values and ideals that are ingrained through a love of God, a belief in the family unit, and a commitment to strong communities,” said Howell. “In the State Senate, I’ll fight for those values, and I’ll be a voice for hard working families across the district.”

Howell is owner and operator of Howell Automotive in Keyser, a leading supplier of auto parts. In 2003, Gary was named “Exporter of the Year” by the U.S. Small Business Administration. He was honored by the West Virginia Motor Sports Council in 2005 for promoting West Virginia across the country. He was also honored with the Governors Commendation for International Market Entry 2007, in recognition for completing sales with the Philippines, South Africa, Aruba, Belgium, Greece, Spain and Sweden.

The 14th Senate district covers all or parts of the counties of Barbour, Grant, Mineral, Monongalia, Preston, Taylor and Tucker.
