Physician Mike Maroney Runs For Senate
Sistersville -Dr. Mike Maroney has been running an aggressive campaign for the Republican nomination in the 2nd State Senate district in West Virginia. Dr. Maroney is a native and long time resident of Marshall County. This is his first attempt at public office.
“As a physician, serving others has always been something that came natural to me,” Maroney said. “While I am new to politics, I do believe this is a critical time for our state and serving others in the State Senate would be another way that I can help our community.”
Ginger Nalley of Sistersville is his opponent in the May 10 Republican Primary.
The 2nd State Senate district, which covers most of Marshall County, all of Wetzel, Tyler, Doddridge, Ritchie, Calhoun Counties and parts of Monongalia, Marion, and Gilmer counties.
The seat is open because the current Senator Jeff Kessler is running for Governor as a Democrat.
“Many West Virginians are facing difficult times: our state has fewer people working than any other state in the nation, too many of our people don’t have access to affordable healthcare, and our education system is broken,” Maroney said. “West Virginia needs to make changes, and I want to be part of the team that gets our state moving in a new direction. As a father and small business owner, I believe West Virginia families deserve better. I would be humbled and honored to serve in the West Virginia State Senate,” concluded Dr. Maroney.
Maroney lives in Glen Dale and has two children. He graduated from John Marshall High School before getting a degree in chemistry from West Virginia University. After graduating from the Marshall University School of Medicine, Maroney did his residency in Diagnostic Radiology and a fellowship in Neuroradiology both at the University of Maryland Medical System.
Since 2003, Maroney has been with Radiology Associate Inc. who provides imaging service to six hospitals in the Ohio Valley. Dr. Maroney serves as Chairman of Radiology at Reynolds Memorial Hospital (Marshall County) and Wetzel County Hospital.
