Roundtable to Discuss Supreme Court Nominee

On Friday, I hosted a roundtable with a broad group of constituents to discuss President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

I appreciate the West Virginians who joined me at Friday's roundtable. I take the responsibility to advise and consent on the President’s Supreme Court nominee very seriously. That’s why I hosted the roundtable, asked West Virginians to submit their thoughts to an email and set up a page for input on my website. It’s plain irresponsible to declare support for or opposition to any nominee within nine minutes of their announcement. I appreciate the constituent input I have received. I will continue to do my due diligence and encourage West Virginians to continue to share their thoughts with me throughout this process.

I encourage all West Virginians to continue sharing their thoughts and concerns with me by emailing SCOTUS@manchin.senate.gov.


One of my Regional Coordinators, Michael Garcia, read to Energy Express students at Moorefield Elementary School. Energy Express is an outstanding summer reading and nutrition program that encourages students to express their creativity and confidence. 


Regional Coordinator, Justin Ray, attended the 90th Birthday Celebration for John Tennant, a Korean War Veteran, former educator and dedicated public servant. I have always admired his patience, generosity, professionalism and compassion – qualities he passed on to his children and grandchildren. Happy Birthday, John!

Girl Scout Troops of Gilmer County

Monday, September 3, Troops will be Ringing Bells for Rosie the Riveter at the Glenville City Park at 12:30 p.m., simultaneously with other troops at locations across the state. The Girls will also be recognized as the first national, official "Rosie the Riveter Girl Scout Troop" by Thanks! Plain and Simple (American Rosie Movement). The current Junior Girl Scouts (rising 5th and 6th graders) have worked very hard as a team during the last nine months to earn their Bronze Awards, awarded in May, for their work with Rosie the Riveters and for metal rationing and recycling. 



Great work, ladies! Thank you for all you have accomplished and I wish you the very best for all you are certain to achieve in the future.

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. John Burgess with his appeal case with the Department of Veterans Affairs.  Kim worked with the VA Regional Office, as well as the Board of Veterans’ Appeals to ensure that all of Mr. Burgess’s information regarding his service was  received and reviewed in a timely manner.  Our veterans have provided an irreplaceable service to our great state and nation, and we are all indebted to these brave men and women whose sacrifices help preserve the freedoms that we hold so dear.  I stand clear in my commitment to serve those who served this country so bravely, and who continue to give back to our communities.
