Natalie Cline - Mon Dems

Natalie Cline

Natalie Cline is running for U.S. Congress in West Virginia’s first district. She writes:

I am focused on working with community leaders, public officials, labor leaders, business leaders, health care providers, and individuals to alleviate the opioid epidemic that has ravaged West Virginia. I am also passionate about making higher education less of a financial burden, helping to bolster an educated workforce. I know West Virginia’s Parents and Grandparents want a U.S. Congresswoman who will work hard to create jobs and opportunities locally for their children and grandchildren so they can stay close to home.

After returning to West Virginia, I am constantly reminded that this was the right decision. Our son, Teddy, sees his grandparents every day, just as we did growing up, we have daily interactions with both old and new friends, and we have easily slid back into the community mode that is West Virginian culture. We want him to grow up feeling the grass between his toes, feeling the love of a close-knit community, and experience an American culture like no other – the beautiful and warm heritage of West Virginia.  

“And the thing that gets me the most is watching my son run through our yard with his shoes off giggling. I’ll never know exactly what makes him giggle when he is running through the yard barefoot, I suspect that changes with the wind, but I do remember the feeling, and it’s that nostalgic-pride that tells me we are doing something right.”
