/ RE-ELECT Mary Pearl Compton For House Of Delegates Because I care about Monroe and Summers Countians, I have continued my fight for jobs through economic development. Punch No. 24 on Ballot During this past session of the legislature, I fought for a long term plan to build and expand West Virginia's infrastructure- water service, sewage treatment, and commercial/industrial site development. The battle ended with the passage of an infrastructure plan which dedicated part of the current severance tax on coal, oil and gas to finance these projects. I will continue my fight for economic development. Paid for by the Committee to elect Mary Pearl Compton, J. W. Lamw, Treas. OBITUARIES REV. HARPER T. CALLISON The Rev. Harper T.
