Constitutional Conservative Republican for West Virginia House of Delegates

I have spent my entire adult life defending our country.

Meet Bill

I’m Bill Ridenour – a first time candidate for public office running for the WV House of Delegates for District 100, Jefferson County. We are proud to call West Virginia our home. My wife and I live near Route 115 with our dog Karina.

I served our country as a Marine and a defense intelligence officer for over 40 years. Now it is time to serve the people of West Virginia.

My campaign for WV Delegate focuses on protecting and securing our freedoms and rights under the Constitution. I strongly support the First and Second Amendment. I believe religious freedom is the cornerstone of a free society. I am Pro-Life. I am for LEGAL immigration. I am for small government, lowering taxes, and against government restrictions and mandates. I believe we should Keep West Virginia Free and Open!

We have three sons – my oldest son is an Army National Guard infantry platoon leader currently deployed for combat in East Africa. My middle son is a cyber security software engineer supporting Homeland Security. My youngest son is a combat engineer platoon leader at Fort Hood, Texas. Our family is also blessed with two amazing daughters-in-law. My middle son and daughter-in-law live close by in Berkeley County, WV.

I have been married for 33 years to my incredible wife, Jean, a legal immigrant and fiercely patriotic American.

Our wonderful dog Karina is a rescue, she loves chasing squirrels, going for walks and hikes, and exploring West Virginia.

Marine Corps and Intelligence Experience

I grew up in Ohio, Tennessee, North Carolina, Maryland, and Indiana, joining the Marine Corps during the dark years of the Carter regime to protect the greatest country in the world. I was commissioned as a lieutenant and served in combat units during the 1980s, preparing to fight the Soviets and North Koreans. Thankfully, and largely due to the inspired leadership of Ronald Reagan, a cataclysmic war was avoided. I later served as a strategic intelligence officer covering ongoing wars and conflicts in Southeast Asia.

Eventually, I rejoined Marine combat forces and prepared for possible operations in Haiti, Iraq, Bosnia, and Croatia.  After the Iranian terrorist attack on the Air Force Khobar Towers barracks in Saudi Arabia, I worked at the U.S. Pacific Command combating terrorism.  

After retiring from the Marine Corps, I was in the Pentagon during 9/11, losing many friends. I rejoined the counterterrorism fight, deploying to Iraq in 2004 and 2005 as part of a team hunting al-Qaida and Iranian terrorists.  For six years, I led a global DoD counterintelligence campaign against al-Qaida, however our work was cut short by the Obama regime after bin Ladin’s death.  

I continued supporting strategic counterintelligence efforts against America’s greatest foreign enemies. I was a Distinguished Graduate of the Marine Corps War College, and finally retired from federal public service in 2021 as the Joint Staff J2 Chief of Strategic Policy, as I saw the utter futility of advising the feckless Biden regime.
