McKinley Talks Workforce Needs, Tax Reform, Diversifying WV's Economy

This past week, we traveled across the district to discuss workforce needs, tax reform, and diversifying West Virginia's economy. We had a busy week visiting Wood, Hancock, Doddridge, and Monongalia County.

We were pleased to host a roundtable with veterans from the American Legion Post 15 in Parkersburg, and to discuss WV's economic resurgence at the monthly legislative breakfast in Wood County. As always, we had lively discussions, and it was nice to catch up with old friends. Although there is more work to be done, there is a lot of optimism about things turning around for our state.
