My name is Belinda Fox-Spencer, and I'm running for the U.S. Congress, House of Representatives to represent my home, West Virginia's 3rd district. I am the only candidate that was born and raised in southern West Virginia, where I still reside today. Growing up, I was taught by my family the values of hard work and respect for others, as many of them worked in farming, infrastructure, and military. I am also proud to say I grew up in a Christian home in which I was taught the importance of compassion and love for all people. I have two children, Raven and Sadie. My son, Raven, is a medical student at WVU. My daughter, Sadie, is a high school student in Monroe County. I'm a small business owner and have worked in health care for 18 years as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer, specializing in Women's Health.
Like you, I'm very disturbed to watch what is happening to our state and country. More than ever, we need bold leadership with experience in controversial issues, such as Pro-Life, Pro-Second Amendment, and Civil Rights. I'm tired of corruptness, empty political speeches, immorality, and the unwillingness to take a stand in the face of adversity. This is why I decided to run for U.S. Congress, House of Representatives, post the primary election.
West Virginia needs a representative to fight for our state, and what seems to be lost -- our freedoms, morals and values. Our children deserve a chance to grow up without fear and insecurity. We need real solutions, not broken promises. If we do not take a stand now, we and our future generations will suffer immensely.
We are indeed living in very perilous times. This election and the families of West Virginia are important to me. Unfortunately, the restrictions of the Covid-19 forced me into running as a Write-In-Candidate. Convincing voters to write my name at the bottom of their ballots seems unlikely, and in reality, very few have won, but it's not impossible. This year's election is the most important in our lifetime. My experience in business and health care makes me the best candidate to represent West Virginia. I want to go to Washington to fight for our nation and my home state.
