Welcome from Senate President William P. Cole III
Welcome to the West Virginia Legislature’s website for the Senate. It’s my hope you will visit us often
to learn more about the day-to-day activities of your Senators as we get started with this historic 82nd
I had the honor and privilege of being elected Senate President on January 14, 2015. With this new
majority comes new opportunities for both the Senate and the State of West Virginia. My goal is simple:
It’s to create the kind of West Virginia that our kids can forever call home. I hope to do this by fostering
an improved business climate for job creation, making our education system the pride of the nation, and
helping raise the standard of living for all West Virginians.
I’m honored to serve all citizens of this great state, no matter your party affiliation. You can always
contact my office - by phone, by letter, or by email - with your concerns and ideas for making this state
the best it can be. My door is always open to you.
