            Whereas, Following Mike’s death, among the many condolences, statements were issued by:

            (1) West Virginia Governor Earl R. Tomblin who stated, “Mike was an exceptional leader with an incredible passion for Mingo County as well as the entire state. From his time and service in the Legislature to his leadership of the Mingo County Redevelopment Authority, the lasting impact of Mike’s work can be seen throughout our state, especially Southern West Virginia”;

            (2) Congressman Nick Joe Rahall, stating, “Mike was a rare breed. He was a thinker and a doer. An architect, designer, businessman, contractor, banker, craftsman, laborer and a street smart handy man whenever, wherever the need arose . . . all rolled into one. He redefined public service with a mix of down home common sense, hard work, ingenuity and innovation. He was light years ahead of others in forging public funding and, above all, creating good paying, sustainable jobs for families. His work will live on here in the county, our state and country. It sure will live on in the team he created with the Redevelopment Authority. We all can take joy from this occasion that while it came far too soon, that what time we had with him it was a privilege and honor to know this man of faith, family and friends; that our lives will continue to be enriched from the times we shared with him”;

            (3) Senator Joe Manchin, who stated, “Mike was a visionary. He not only saw the big picture, he drew it and then colored it in with remarkable detail. Then, harnessing his extraordinary determination and organization, Mike built the relationships and partnerships that could make this vision a reality. I cannot even count the legacies that Mike Whitt left in Mingo County and for our entire state. He will never be forgotten and his work will stand for generations to come”;

            (4) Coworker and Executive Assistant, Leasha Johnson, stating, “I believe in my heart that Mike Whitt, more than anyone I’ve ever known, was born to make Mingo County a better place. And, that, he did”;

            (5) Former West Virginia House of Delegate’s Member and Current Executive Director of Mingo County Redevelopment Authority, Steve Kominar, who stated, “Mike was a true son of Mingo County and was not shy about that. He loved this county, its people and the future of Mingo County”; and 

            Whereas, Mike gave so much of himself, his heart and his mind to West Virginia and, in particular, to Mingo County, that it is most fitting for a highway which opens Mingo County to the world, a highway that Mike was instrumental in developing, to be his namesake and an everlasting tribute to this great man; therefore, be it

            Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

            That the Division of Highways is hereby requested to name all sections, existing and to-be-constructed, of the King Coal Highway, I-73/74, running through Mingo County, West Virginia, the “Mike Whitt Visionary Leadership Highway”; and, be it

            Further Resolved, That the Division of Highways is hereby requested to have made signs, to be erected at the beginning and end of each section of the Highway and at regular intervals along both sides of the highway, that state, in bold, prominent lettering, the “Mike Whitt Visionary Leadership Highway”; and, be it

            Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates forward a certified copy of this resolution to the widow of Mike Whitt, Regina Edwards Whitt, with separate certified copies to his four children; certified copy to the Mingo County Redevelopment Authority; certified copy to the County Commission of Mingo County; and, certified copy to the Secretary of the Department of Transportation.

            At the request of Delegate Boggs, and by unanimous consent, reference of the resolution (H. R. 42) to a committee was dispensed with, and it was taken up for immediate consideration,
