On the Road

This weekend I was honored to attend the Salute to Our Veterans and First Responders Air Show at Yeager Airport with the one and only Chuck Yeager. On this day in 1947, he made history as the first pilot to break the sound barrier. I am proud to join all West Virginians in celebrating his legacy and that of all our nation's heroes.

We had nearly 70 vendors and hundreds of job seekers in attendance for the Fairmont Regional Job Fair on Friday. I wish the best of luck to all the job seekers and I appreciate the vendors and volunteers who came together to make this fair such an outstanding success. It's been my privilege to host or participate in more than 30 job fairs since October 2015.

On Friday I participated in a roundtable with officials from the Department of Defense Security Service and more than a dozen cybersecurity and technology companies to discuss the challenges and possible fixes associated with the national backlog of security clearances and how it impacts West Virginia companies.

Last week one of my Regional Coordinators, Mary Jo Brown, attended the Women of Distinction luncheon in Martinsburg and had the pleasure of visiting with a very special Berkeley Springs constituent. Betty Lou Harmison was recognized as a Woman of Distinction in 2010. As Governor, I was honored to appoint her to the State Historical Commission, and she continues to serve in the Berkeley Springs community at the age of 93.
