Candidate profile: Michelle R. Storage, Charleston City Council, Ward 19

Michelle R. Storage (D)

Charleston

Education: Marshall University, 2007; WVU College of Law, 2011.

Occupation: Attorney at MacCorkle Lavender, PLLC

Gazette Opinion:

Q: Do you support evidence-based programs to protect public health during the drug abuse crisis?

A: I support the use of evidence-based research. Specifically, I believe examining evidence-based programs that have been used in other cities is beneficial. Not only would those treatment processes be supported by evidence-based research, but you can also see how the treatment processes have fared in practice.

Q: Would you support expanding the bike pathway along Kanawha Boulevard?

A: Yes. The bike path improves the livability of the city by creating a pedestrian-friendly thoroughfare that promotes safety and healthy lifestyles while lessening the impact of motor vehicles.

Daily Mail Opinion:

Q: How should the city address the issue of criminal transient individuals?

A: Individuals selling drugs or committing violent crimes should be arrested regardless of how long they plan to remain in our city. However, individuals arrested for open container violations, possession of drug paraphernalia, or public intoxication are likely in need of support services from local charitable organizations regarding substance abuse programs.

Q: Has the city of Charleston become a better or worse place to live in the past five years? How so?

A: Charleston has become a better place to live. Improvements to the Charleston Coliseum & Convention Center, the development of Elk City, and local events like Live on the Levee, ArtWalk, and FestivALL are just a few improvements that will have a lasting affect on the city’s future.
