On the Road

I had the pleasure of speaking with some of Man High School's best and brightest from Washington via Skype. Thank you all for your excellent questions!


Senator Manchin speaks with students of Man High School.

Regional Coordinator Mary Jo Guidi attended the Prudential Spirit of Community Award ceremony for middle-school level honoree, Chloe Orecchio. Chloe was at the forefront of a cleanup program at her school. I'm proud to join her family, school, and community in congratulating her for this well-deserved honor.

Regional Coordinator Mary Jo Guidi held yet another successful Manchin Mobile Monday stop while at the Hancock Senior Wellness Center. Many thanks to the constituents who stopped by and spoke with Mary Jo. As with all the Manchin Mobile Monday events, my staff will get your comments and concerns to me as well as assist you with obtaining help with a federal agency.

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 is given to your case. 

Mr. Richard Skotarski of Hedgesville contacted our office regarding the delay of his requested refund for the 2018 American Eagle Palladium One Ounce Proof Coin that he ordered but was not delivered. Caseworker Gerrie Greene contacted the U.S. Mint for a response. A certificate of non-receipt, as well as a refund for the price of the coin, was soon issued to Mr. Skortarski. Additionally, a U.S. Mint customer service manager contacted him by phone confirming the refund and advised him to contact them with any additional questions.

Crab Orchard Baptist Church Becomes Permanent Position for Mountaineer Food Bank's Veteran Food Distribution


Due to the popularity of the event, traffic congestion became an issue at the Beckley VAMC. The decision was made in partnership with the Mountaineer Food Bank to move the mobile food bank to a new location that would not interfere with healthcare at the Medical Center.

The next distribution will be held on Thursday, March 21 in the Crab Orchard Baptist Church from 10 a.m. until noon.  The address is 1501 Robert C Byrd Drive, Crab Orchard, WV 25827.

Attendees will remain in their vehicles and volunteers will walk the line of cars to receive signatures. Attendees will then drive up to the Mountaineer Food Bank truck and collect the appropriate box of food.  Visit for more information.
