Funny How Life Turns Out: My Long-Time, Good Friend Carte Goodwin Appointed to the U.S. Senate

July 21, 2010

It was almost 20 years ago that I met Senator Carte Goodwin.   It was July of 1991 in Morgantown, West Virginia.  We were 16 years old and at the West Virginia Governor’s Honors Academy.   We were fast friends and continued to be for many years.

While what I have been watching on television and reading in print is very surreal for me, it is by no means a surprise.  Carte Goodwin had charisma, character, integrity, intellect and drive.  I knew it then and the whole country will know it now.

His late father Steve was one of my earliest inspirations to become a lawyer.   His gorgeous sister Aly, one of my good college friends, was someone I emulated.

Carte Goodwin will do great things not only for the State of West Virginia, but for this country.  Mark my words.
