FROM STAFF REPORTS
May 14, 2013
U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) announced that his office will launch its fifth “Commonsense Connections” Week beginning Monday, May 20.
Representatives from Senator Manchin’s office will make more than 95 stops across West Virginia – traveling to all 55 counties – to meet with constituents, hear their commonsense priorities and concerns, and gather their feedback.
Manchin’s office will be in Boone County on Monday, May 20, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Racine Senior Center at 446 John Slack Circle in Racine.
“Bringing the government directly to our citizens and knowing their concerns and ideas have always been top priorities for me as a former governor and now as U.S. Senator,” Senator Manchin said. “West Virginians should have access to assistance and that is what ‘Commonsense Connections’ is all about – my staff travels to every corner of the state, to every county, and meets with West Virginians to hear about their personal challenges and suggestions for Washington.”
Senator Manchin launched his first-ever “Commonsense Connections” Week in February 2011, when representatives from his office traveled to all 55 counties in the state. This is the fifth time the staff has crisscrossed the state for “Commonsense Connections.”
