The weather turns a little cooler, the leaves change colors, and football is in full swing. Signs of fall? No, these are signs to me that Election Day is just around the corner. Everyone on our team has been working hard for many months now, but we are just over 2 weeks away from our chance to change the direction of our state.
I am busy on the campaign trail 7 days a week right now, and I'd ask you to join me in building a Brighter Future for West Virginia. A few simple things could make a huge difference in this election. Please consider talking to your friends and neighbors this week, and remind them that early voting starts on Wednesday, October 24. When you are at work, remind a co-worker. When you are at the store, remind the cashier, and above all get your whole family out to vote. It really could make the difference in this election.
Thank you for all you do!
Factory Tours- Dupont & Armstrong World Industries
This week I toured several important manufacturers in our state. On Monday, I toured the Dupont Factory in Parkersburg. On Thursday, I toured the Armstrong World Industries facility in Millwood. Both are great employers for our state. We must do more to encourage manufacturing in West Virginia.
Town Halls- Kanawha Co & Wood Co
We hosted two town hall meeting this week: in Charleston and in Parkersburg. We have hosted about a dozen of these town hall meetings, but I am still amazed by the questions and suggestions that come from my fellow West Virginians!
