Joe Manchin receives State Chamber's endorsement The West Virginia State Chamber of Commerce on October 5 endorse- ment of Joe Manchin for Governor. The Chamber's leadership, repre- senting its 5,000 members (who em- ploy over 1/2 of West Virginia's workforce) cited Manchin's commit- ment to job creation and his plan to assist small businesses in their efforts to provide health care to their workers are two of the many reasons why they took this action. The endorsement made history as Joe Manchin became the first ever West Virginia candidate for Governor to be endorsed by both the AFL-CIO and the State Chamber of Commerce. According to State Chamber Presi- dent Steve Roberts. "Joe has a long history, of being supportive of em- ployers and the need to create jobs for all West Virginians. As a small busi- nessman himself, Joe understands and can appreciate the needs of our organization's members. During the past four years as Secretary of State, Joe has shown how sound planning, good management and the use of tech- nological innovations can make gov- ernment more effective, accessible and service--oriented. The thousands of members of the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce offer their assistance and talents to Joe as he -brings these same traits and initia- tives to the Governor's office.

Byrd In West Virginia, we live by certain values: faith in God; love for our beautiful hills; love for our magnifi- cent country. The old-time religion is strong in these hills just like the old- time patriotism. West Virginia was created out of the crucible of the Civil War, and, just like both sides in that struggle, West Virginians have made it through hard times together. President Lincoln, who relied greatly on his faith, was once asked if he thought God was on the Union's side in the Civil War. President Lin- coln responded that he was not so concerned if God was on their side, but if they were on God's side. There is great truth in Mr. Lincoln's words. The United States is a great country because it was founded by men and women who believed in God and in the right to worship. They were on God's side. But today, some- times people of faith feel that they don't have a voice in the life of this nation. I understand that feeling. It's a frustration that we all share. There ought to be room in this great country for different views to be heard and discussed. Yet, sometimes politics gets in the way. What concerns me is when politi- cians and political organizations make use of religion to achieve blatantly political objectives. GOd does not favor the particular position of any political party. God judges us by the erty. They need food, clothing, and way we live, not by the way we vote. shelter, not broken promises.
