I heard Skeeter is thinking about running against Bill Hamilton for House of Delegates.

Anyone know if that is true? There is probably a few other people thinking about running too.

The filing for the 2014 election is still a year off. The primary is 15 months off. The general election is 21 months off. There are probably a lot of people "thinking" about way more pressing things than this.

The filing deadline is way off, but there are already candidates filing to run across the state.

According to the Secretary of State's Office, they oversee all elections in West Virginia- the filing for office for 2014 will start up about mid January of 2014.

It's really hard to be an incumbent and Bill Hamilton is doing a great job. It takes years to build clout in the Legislature and Bill has already achieved that. Why start all over with someone new?

Bill Hamilton has always done a good job for Upshur County. I would hate to see someone else have the job without the experience. I would especially hate to see Skeeter Queen be elected. Thanks goodness there is plenty of time.

I don't think anyone will beat Hamilton, certainly not Skeeter.

He was a great EMT, but that doesn't mean he'd be a good delegate.

Bill Hamilton has been there for a long time, sooner or later he'll have to call it quits and there will probably be a lot of people who run for it.

It's possible that after Shelly Moore Capito runs for Senator Rockefeller's senate seat that everyone will get bumped up the ladder. I think Skeeter did a good job in the city council but I do think that elections are too far off to even consider anyone at this point.

I never said i knew him well, just basing this off what i know

I have to think it would be hard for him to win Delegate if he couldn't win Mayor.

As far as everyone getting bumped up, what would Hamilton get bumped up to, state Senate?

And you must not know as much as you think, all EMS care providers are EMT's. It's a matter of your level of training. EMT-B, EMT-I,or EMT-P (Basic/Intermediate/Paramedic)

If Hamilton does move up, who will take his place?

Probably to have to be a Republican, Democrats can't win elections around here

After the election, Topix was a place not often visited because of the chaotic drama that thrives here...however, when being confronted and questioned if Skeeter was going to run for office again because that is what Topix said we figured we would once again clarify the truth. The decision to run for Mayor was with the best interest of our community in mind. Skeeter's plans for Mayor were not based on hidden agendas and did not include the dirty policital tactics that have continued to grow within our community over the last few years. He had the best interest of everyone involved and wanted to once again make the residents of our city feel as if their opinions, desires, and needs were met.

As for running against Bill Hamiliton - that is ridiculous. Skeeter has no plans what-so-ever to run for House of Delegates. We will go and cast our vote in the next election as we have done in the past for Bill because he has represented us well in that capacity.

It is entertaining that the rumor mill continues. Unfortunately, some have nothing better to do. As for us, we are not interested in playing in the "political drama" that continues on and on with no end in sight.

Good candidates are hard to find and even more so difficult to keep in office because of the negativity that surrounds politics presently. But, as for Skeeter and I...we will continue to go to work everyday and do our best to help out in our community as much as possible without the spotlight appearances that others need to thrive.

Thanks for the kudos from our EMS career - we enjoyed working with the community and helping all those that needed our assistance over the years.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions so we can give you realistic answers and alleviate the assumptions!:)

Gotta love Topix!

This is not true either they have drivers rated as CPR drivers they are not EMT's just qualified to do CPR

Please, apparently none of you have ever actually worked with him! He is an arrogant know it all and is very condescending to others. I worked with him at the hospital and he was not very will like up on the hill. Just because you are an EMT it does not qualify you to work with the more qualified medical personnel at the hospital. He would try and boss and direct them - was a big laughing stock there! He would never get elected to the Legislature, just like he couldn't for mayor. Not that many people have heard of him outside of town and he is not qualified.

Apparently you are the ignorant soul that can't read because for one...he wasn't an EMT he was a Medic...and further more he is not running for Legislature. I can't imagine where people come up with this stuff. Condenscending is a rather harsh term in my opinion because I can't even fathom your reference concerning this after knowing him and the the things he has done for others. He didn't win for Mayor because of the pathetic politics in Buckhannon...none the less it doesn't change who he is or the purposeful things he has done in the community. Think what you will because everyone is entitled to their own opinion; however, the only thing I can say about that is know your facts and talk with some intelligence prior to posting your blathering thoughts on this worthless site.
