On short notice, Jay Rockefeller addressed a public meeting in Pocahontas last Thursday night. A good crowd of about 250 greeted the gubernatorial candidate and his wife, Sharon…
The weather turned bad and the roads were a little slick or there would have been a much bigger crowd, but it was a good attendance for any occasion.
Mr. Rockefeller was presented by David Rittenhouse, a down-the-road neighbor. The Dunmore community really turned out.
Talking informally, Mr. Rockefeller outlined his program in three main categories: jobs, conservation, and one standard of government service for all people, farmer or big business man, coal miner or coal operator. His appeal was for every citizen to get involved in thinking what his community, county and state needs, including and particularly those people who have never been involved in politics before. He wants every person to feel that he has a direct line of communication to him. No high powered political hierarchy – just government of, by and for the people. It was an effective presentation.
