Senator announces ‘Commonsense Connections’


Submitted Article



U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) is pleased to announce that his office will launch its ninth “Commonsense Connections” Week beginning Monday, May 22. Representatives from Senator Manchin’s office will make more than 80 stops across the state to bring federal government to West Virginians, hear their commonsense priorities and concerns, and take feedback to the Senator.

“I believe in retail government – bringing the government directly to our citizens, hearing their concerns and finding the best possible commonsense solutions to the issues that matter to them,” Senator Manchin said. “The customer comes first in business, just as the citizens should come first in government. That is what ‘Commonsense Connections’ is all about. My staff travels to every corner of the state and meets with our constituents to hear about the personal challenges they are facing and their ideas of how to move our country forward, and then I take their ideas to 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 ninth time the staff will visit every county in the state in just one week.

A list of stops is included below (county-by-county). Additional events may be added.

Please note Senator Manchin will not be in attendance for these events.
