Since Mike first took office in Tazewell County, the outside auditing firm for the county has reported it is one of the best managed in Southwest Virginia. This is why they had $2.8 million in surplus funding during 2013.

Mike supports the program to help the children of Southwest Virginia reach their full potential.
