Senator Capito Speaking

US Senator Shelley Capito Speaks to ALMBS Citizens

Senator Shelley Moore Capito – Shelley Moore Capito was elected by the people of West Virginia to the United States Senate in 2014, and re-elected in 2020. She is the first female U.S. senator in West Virginia’s history and was elected with the largest margin of victory for a Republican in state history—winning more than 70 percent of the vote and all 55 counties, surpassing the previous mark she set in 2014 when she won more than 62 percent of the vote and all 55 counties. After serving West Virginia’s Second Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives for 14 years, and as a member of the West Virginia House of Delegates for four years prior, Senator Capito decided to run for Senate to be an even stronger voice for the Mountain State.

Jamie Summerlin Addresses ALMBS

On March 26, 2012, Jamie Summerlin, a US Marine Corps veteran, started an improbable cross-country journey. In order to honor our Military, Veterans, and raise funds for West Virginia-based Operation Welcome Home, a veteran’s facility he helped co-found in 2012, he would run coast to coast beginning in Coos Bay, Oregon. After 100 days, 10 pairs of running shoes, 3,452 miles, and impacting countless lives along the way, Jamie completed his journey in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, becoming the 48th person in history to complete a true Ocean to Ocean run across America.

Jamie currently serves as the CEO of Guidon Creative, an events management and promotion company that provides consulting, management and design for events large and small in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

Jamie resides in Morgantown WV with his wife Tiffany, who are the proud parents of their two children Nicholas & Shayna, and are currently very happy to be empty-nesters.
