They do want change its just that the people of the county are not convinced that change is possible but with the way politics in the county are and have been for quite some time now of remaining in office and being shuffled around it makes the ideal of recovery highly unlikely because the ones who are in the high offices of the county are the only ones who doesn't want change.
They are in the county offices for one reason only and that is for them selves,they care nothing about the county and the people in the county deserve much better and its just sad that they are continuously being misled and the communities that the people of McDowell Co. live in are so neglected in so many ways by the likes of Moore,Lambert and the others.

Look,I know you want to blame the UMWA but they are not responsible at all for the demoralization,depopulation,la wlessness and corruption that has been going on for at least the last two decades.
Put the blame where it truly belongs,on those who are put in office and trust over the county.
They can do a lot of good for the county but they choose to serve only themselves.
