    He's a great person, has integrity and intelligence. Mark has a great work ethic. He's no political pawn. Congratulations Mark

      The $250.00 Mr. Matkovich's wife Karen contributed to the tomblin campaign on April 7, 2011 really paid off.

  • C.Hoffman

    He's a career government employee at least since 1996. legislative/executive staffer & counsel for the senate. So he's a support pol and a lawyer and given the democrat control in WV for 80+ yrs., a hack and cronycrat of the good ol' boys network. He'll fit right in with the current den of thieves. With his prior positions he likely knows where all the skeletons are buried. That knowledge alone is a sure fire advancer in government such as we have.

  • Joe Brown

    His qualifications are that he's a Democrat operative. It's the WV way.

    And what are his qualifications or am I missing something?
