Addressing the Silver Haired Legislature

Monday, I had the privilege of addressing the West Virginia Silver Haired Legislature at their annual conference in Charleston. The West Virginia Silver Haired Legislature is a model legislature, composed of representatives 60 years of age or older, who are elected from throughout the state by their peers to advocate for issues affecting seniors.


Rosie the Riveter Ceremony

My Regional Coordinator, Brian Aluise, attended a lovely ceremony honoring our West Virginia Rosie the Riveters last week.  Glenville is now home to a beautiful bronze plaque in the town square honoring the inspirational West Virginia Rosies. 



Paden City Student Career Fair

I was proud to host my first Regional High School Career Fair in beautiful Paden City last week, and was excited to show our future leaders - 500 high school students from across the region - that they have countless opportunities right here in the Mountain State.


How May We Help You?

I truly appreciate the opportunity to hear from my fellow West Virginians. As your U.S. Senator, I am proud to be your voice with government agencies during your time of need. My goal is to provide top-notch customer service for every West Virginian who contacts me, or who may need help.  I have a team of caseworkers in each of my four offices to help you with matters of concern. While I have no direct jurisdiction in the administrative matters of any federal, state, or local agency, I welcome the opportunity to assist you with whatever problem you may be experiencing and ask that full consideration be given to your case.

Recently, Kim Berry, a caseworker in my Fairmont Office, was able to assist Mr. David Gillenwater with his appeal for service connected benefits with the Department of Veterans Affairs.  After his original claim was denied, Kim continuously worked with the VA and the Board of Veterans Appeals to ensure that Mr. Gillenwater’s claim, and supporting information was reviewed in a timely manner.  In April, Mr. Gillenwater’s case received a fully favorable decision.  It is my distinct honor to be helpful to the brave service members, like Mr. Gillenwater, who have provided an irreplaceable service to our great state and nation and forever deserve the recognition they receive.
