The Crooked Road has nothing to do with politics. It never has, and never will. It is a private group of Virginians who want to create jobs and improve the quality of life in Southwest Virginia.
The Constitution says citizens of the nation can organize themselves in free associations and work on matters that concern them. That’s what we are: a free association of volunteers. We pay no attention to politics. Some of us are Republicans, Democrats and independents, and we like each other and share a concern for our region. We never mention politics.
Joe Wilson lives in Fries. He is chairman of the National Council for the Traditional Arts and is a co-founder of The Crooked Road.
