In an article by Reubin Purdue in Connect-Clarksburg Martin Shaffer claims he has been assured he will be one of the candidates for the governer to consider.

"MARTIN SHAFFER SAYS HE'LL GET ONE OF THREE POSITIONS NOMINATED BY COMMITTEE!

The committee may only be voting for two candidates, in reality. Martin Shaffer says hes been assured that hell be one of the three names selected for the Governor to consider. Ramsey, though, says to his knowledge that is not the case.

No. Weve not discussed that yet said Ramsey when asked if hed given any assurances or consideration to who he would vote for."

THIS IS MY TAKE
On this outrageous claim
in last years election for HOD Martin came in last place out of the 5 delegates running with less than 12% of the vote.

ADDITIONALLY
I read in another Connect-Clarksburg article he was involved in a shady closed door voting session for state senate where as a committe member he cast all three of his votes for one candidate to insure that candidate was one of the three selected for consideration.
Quoted from article:
"As a longtime Democrat Party operative, Shaffer knew that giving all three votes to ONE person was not permitted and struck down in a similar case in Greenbrier County........but the other Committee members took Shaffer's word that giving three votes to one person was legal."
"On Friday morning I learned from a Charleston-area attorney that Shaffer's "three-vote" strategy for Romano was not permitted."

I just want to know how is this man and his repeated shady practices not ran out of this town, let alone allowed to even participate in our government. He 'illegedly'(and I say likely after reading it) participated in a slanderous news letter about the citys council members and city manager while he was a member of council.

Does anyone really take this man seriously anymore? Or is he just still in clarksburg sheerly for entertainment purposes?
We just want to see what he will try to get by with next.

I am down in SC right now on some family business dealing with 'this thing of ours.'

Meadow's fine, but if I catch you dreaming about her one more time, I am going to pound your head up your rear end so far that you will need a scuba tank just to breathe air.

Joe Shaffer was murdered on Clark Street in Glen Elk. For you to threaten others with murder is outrageous.

Listen this turned into a playful conversation, but Martin Shaffer is not and never will be a good candidate for political affiliation. He manipulates things to best suit his purpouses and just for an example the action shown above using 3 votes for one candidate that being affiliated with the democratic party for as long as he has knows that is not permitted, but assured other members that it was. He continuously shirks responsibility for his actions and expects extra things he doesn't afford others in return. I have never met someone so sue happy... Oh and he still has a sign up in glenn elk asking to vote for him for city council last time I checked across from the mission. There are only certain times you can post campaign signs, but by gawd he can do it if he wants too.
Bottom line, if you look up dirty polititian in the dictionary, you would see Mr. Shaffers photo.

Well crooked is as crooked does!
And the nominiees are....Chunki Angotti....Ron Fragale.....AND Martin Shaffer
I was just informed that Martin was indeed picked as one of the three for the Govenor to consider.
I am both shocked and amazed that one, someone on the board did likely indeed promise him that spot, and two, once he went on record stating as such, they didn't pull their support when it would make them look as if it was all rigged from the start, especially after they went on record to say they had not made such a statement.

I can only hope that Governor Tomlin makes a wise choice and picks either of the other two candidates.
