About Lacy Watson
I genuinely want to represent the people of West Virginia’s southern district to promote their interests and concerns. I am a proud citizen of Bluefield and the product of the Mercer County public school system. I will exercise sound judgment to further develop the economic, social, and educational standards my county has come to expect from its community leaders.
I am active in the community through my service with the United Methodist Church, and through my former outreach activities which include serving as an instructor at Bluefield State College. I am a regular community volunteer and organizer as well as an advanced lay speaker with the United Methodist Church. My parents are lifelong residents of Mercer County, and I am the eldest of three distinguished siblings.
The values that I possess and live by are simple and unwavering: love God, and love your neighbor. What I want the people of West Virginia’s 1st district to know about me is this: I am a work in progress. I possess the same values they hold, and together through the legislative process, we can construct a WV that works for us all. I want the people of southern West Virginia to know that the decisions I make as their representative will always be in their best interest and informed by their input.
