West Virginia Attorney General Calls for an End to Taxpayer-funded Promotional Products
Westerman, who said he is a republican and agreed that McGraw should not have used taxpayer money to support his re-election, claimed he was more concerned that the attorney general's comments would send the wrong message. "Promotional products are a valuable and cost-effective tool to educate, inform and promote a cause for any office of the government," he said. "If our Attorney General thinks that magnets with important office numbers, email addresses or website listings are a waste of money, he needs to wake up."
The attorney general's reforms are not limited to promotional products. Morrisey said his name will not appear on educational brochures and other literature unless necessary, and that he would not appear in television or radio ads paid for by the office during election years. Other proposals on his agenda include prohibiting the use of state-owned vehicles in parades and limiting the attorney general to two terms in office.
