CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Legal Newsline) - The United Auto Workers West Virginia Community Action Program and United Auto Workers Local Union 1590 announced they again have endorsed Robin Davis for re-election to the West Virginia Supreme Court.

"The United Auto Workers West Virginia CAP is proud and privileged to once again endorse Robin Davis for re-election to the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals," said Ken Collinson, president of UAW Local 1590 and the UAW WV CAP. "In her tenure on the court, she has displayed integrity, fairness, transparency and dedication to the position of Supreme Court Justice.

"Justice Davis has provided a fair review to all participants in the court. Under her guidance, the West Virginia Supreme Court is open to all citizens of West Virginia."

"I am so pleased to again accept the endorsement of the UAW WV CAP and UAW Local 1590," Davis said. "It is important that every West Virginian knows each case will receive a fair review under the law in their Supreme Court. The stability, transparency and predictability of the Court are critical to moving our state forward, and I never forget that."
