I know that Mingo County today has a tear in its eye because of recent events. We all have our ups and down in life.
I am reminded of the positive vision for the future of Mingo County that my late friend Mike Whitt worked so hard to create. I know that better days lie ahead for Mingo County.
With an abiding faith in the Lord and in yourselves to stand for what’s right, the great county of Mingo will move forward despite these recent setbacks.
You all will overcome the present dilemma. Don’t let this break the true spirit or good hearts of Mingo Countians. A new day will dawn.
Mingo Countians are great people with a bright future. God bless all of you and your families.
Hon. Wayne T. Rutherford
Pike County Judge/Executive
