Austin Haynes

Running For House of Delegates

I am a proud, conservative Republican. Representing the 32nd District for the last two years has been an absolute honor and privilege. My dad and I own and operate a local insurance agency in Oak Hill, and I’m a graduated of Oak Hill High School.

In the last election, I made some promises, and I kept them. I said that I would not vote to raise taxes, and I haven’t. I said that I would stand up for veterans, and I did by fighting the federal government’s attempt to reduce services at our VA hospitals (and we won). I said that I would introduce legislation to double the homestead exemption, and I did. I said that I would offer a bill to create a tax credit for all first responders, and I did. I said that I would support legislation that created jobs, and I have proudly voted for bills that created thousands of new jobs in WV. I said that I would not defund the police, and I voted for the single largest pay raise for the State Police. I said that I would support school teachers, and I did by voting for a pay raise and other benefits. I keep promises that I make, and I take a stand on difficult issues when it would be easier to hide and call names.

If I’m fortunate enough to be re-elected, I plan to continue working to find ways to lower the tax burden on our people and businesses. I plan to continue supporting economic growth in Fayette County. I plan to keep working on litter control and dilapidated structures so the beauty of our area can shine through even brighter. I plan to continue supporting tourism by ensuring that our CVB budgets remain intact. I plan to continue having the backs of our veterans and first responders. These are the things that matter to our success.

I am proudly endorsed by the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce, the Business and Industry Council, the West Virginia Education Association, West Virginians for Life, the National Rifle Association, the West Virginia Farm Bureau, the West Virginia Troopers Association, the West Virginia Manufacturers Association, the West Virginia Contractors Association, and others.

I would be proud to continue being your voice under the gold dome in Charleston. I humbly ask for your vote in the upcoming election.
