The Institute for Principled Policy and Camp American have been jointly sponsoring classes of Institute on the Constitution for over two years now.  One of our goals for this class is to prepare citizens for engaging actively in our governmental structures with a foundation of Biblical and constitutional principles to stand on.

In 2012, our goals became reality as two graduates of Institute on the Constitution, Jim Butler and Scott Cadle, decided to run for public office for the first time.  Each stood for the office of Delegate in the West Virginia state Legislature.  Each man had to win a multiple-candidate primary before moving onto the general election.  On November 6th, Butler and Cadle each won a term in the legislature for their districts.

On Tuesday, December 4th, Delegate Scott Cadle of Letart and Delegate Jim Butler of Gallipolis Ferry were officially sworn in at the West Virginia State Capitol by Judge Thomas Evans. Judge Evans is a judge in the Fifth Judicial Circuit, which includes Mason, Jackson, Roane, and Calhoun Counties.

Delegate Cadle represents Northern Mason County, along with part of Putnam and Jackson Counties. Delegate Butler represents Southern Mason County and part of Putnam County.  The first day of the 2013 Legislative Session will be January 9th, followed by a break until February 13th when the sixty day session begins.

The Institute for Principled Policy, Camp American and Institute on the Constitution wishes to extend our heartfelt congratulations to these two distinguished and determined citizens.
