On the Road

I stopped by the West Virginia State Fair last week and had such a great day enjoying the food, music and crafts, and meeting so many of my fellow West Virginians. 

Elementary School student, Braelyn Farrish, sent me a letter inviting me to come see her pigs, Hercules and Jolene. Be sure to pay her a visit if you're at the fair!

Members of my staff have been set up since last week at the State Fair, ready to hear from West Virginians about the issues and concerns that matter in our communities. Stop by and say hello!  


Friday, I attended the WV Press Association annual convention in Charleston to discuss the future of social security. Read more here.


I had the privilege of meeting Vienna Police Officer, Adam Jones, and thanking him for his quick and heroic actions at Jackson Middle School, when a potential threat prompted a lockdown on the last day of school this year. Read more here.



Thursday, I made several stops in beautiful Williamstown. I stopped by the brand new Yellow Jacket Sweets and Eats restaurant owned by my friends, Sherri and Joe Conny. (Read more here.) I also visited Henderson Wilds Gun Shop. It's always a pleasure to talk with my fellow sportsmen and local business owners.



Wednesday, I spent the day in north central West Virginia with the top aviation experts. I toured Lockheed Martin, the Robert C. Byrd National Aerospace Education Center, Bombardier, Aurora Flight Sciences and Pratt & Whitney. I truly love flying planes, but more than that, aviation has a tremendous impact on our state's economy and there are plenty of educational opportunities available to grow the industry even more.
