Dr. Coy A. Flowers, a Lewisburg resident and OB/GYN announces his candidacy for the West Virginia House of Delegates, 42nd District.
“I am running for the West Virginia House of Delegates to bring new leadership and to be a strong voice for the Greenbrier Valley. I am so proud to call this unique area my home. I love our rivers and trails. I love our talented people; I love our compassion for each other and commitment to our communities. I love the Greenbrier Valley,” Flowers said.
An 8th generation West Virginian, Flowers is no stranger to strong, effective leadership. He was educated in West Virginia public schools and went on to earn his undergraduate and doctoral degrees at West Virginia University.
“Service to community and country are basic tenets by which I live,” Flowers added. “I served my country as a member of the US Navy for over a decade, and I am now compelled to serve my community through public office.”
Flowers is a member of the clinical faculty at West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine and President of the Greenbrier Valley Medical Society. As a physician practicing throughout the district, with offices in Lewisburg, Rainelle and Hinton, Flowers understands the multitude of issues affecting families.
“This campaign is an extension of my life-long dedication to caring for the women, children and families of this region,” Flowers said.
If elected, Flowers promises to fight for more good-paying jobs of the future and support small businesses. He added, “I believe workers who put their shoulders to the grind, day in and day out, should earn a paycheck that lifts them up into prosperity and doesn’t bind them in poverty.”
Flowers, the father of a 3rd grader at Lewisburg Elementary School, will also work to ensure a quality education for all children.
“I will passionately support our public schools, ensuring we provide first-class education and training for whatever path our children pursue in life,” Flowers said, adding, “We all want our children to succeed and achieve more than we did in our lifetimes. I will work to see they have those opportunities.”
Like so many West Virginians, Flowers is committed to protecting the region’s land, water and air. Recent pollution and contamination scares have brought the issue to the forefront. Flowers said, “We must have a serious plan for protecting West Virginia’s beauty. It is our mountains, rivers, and natural scenery that make this state “Almost Heaven,” and I am committed to preserving it for all generations to come.”
Flowers will spend the coming months reaching the far corners of the district and has a busy schedule already underway speaking to citizens and leaders in all of its communities.
“There is a lot of hard work ahead, and this campaign is only the beginning of that work,” Flowers said. “Just as I have asked for the support of my neighbors, friends and family, I am now asking for yours and for your vote in the Democratic Primary on May 13.”
