Note from Delegate Danielle Walker

Delegate Danielle Walker will have limited availability for the many causes and constituencies she loves deeply and fights for daily. Delegate Walker will be focusing her time and energies on her family and her most essential responsibilities as a Delegate during coming weeks.

If you have an urgent need that only Delegate Walker can help you with, please email her at danielle.walker {AT} wvhouse {DOT} gov. If anyone else can assist you with your need, please contact your delegate(s) and/or senators. You can find contact information for all legislators at WV Senate and WV House.

If you are able, please step forward to fill Delegate Walker’s shoes by walking the walk of #OneLove for your neighbors and communities. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers and love for Demetry and the entire Walker family, and thank you for your patience during this very difficult time.
