My family moved to South Charleston 62 years ago.  I attended South Charleston Junior High School and graduated from South Charleston High School in 1959, and then Parkersburg Community College.  My wife of 53 years, Frances Kuhn Wolford, passed away January 19, 2015, we have two sons Mark II and Michael. In 1988 I retired from the Charleston Fire Department as the Deputy Fire Chief, I then became the Public Safety Director for Kanawha County, and later the Homeland Security Coordinator for five counties for the State of  West Virginia. I have held the position as President of the South Charleston Optimist Club, and later became the Lt. Governor for the Optimist Clubs in all of West Virginia.

My goal as councilman is to work for my ward, and be their voice at city hall.  I will also work to continue the success and growth of South Charleston and keep it “Someplace Special”.
