WEST VIRGINIA VETERANS FIRST
West Virginia’s veterans have sacrificed for us and we should have their backs when they return home.
Ben will work to ensure that no veteran is homeless. He will expand substance abuse and mental health counseling. A Salango administration will provide career and vocational training for unemployed veterans and for veterans looking to change careers.
As governor, Ben will establish a business start-up assistance program for veterans who want to start their own businesses -- similar to the UKAN program he spearheaded as Kanawha County commissioner. In addition, Ben will give priority to in-state contracts to businesses owned by local veterans. He will give veterans a leg up when they apply for state jobs.
