‘Commonsense’ coming to town near you

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin’s office will launch its fifth “Commonsense Connections” Week beginning May 20. Representatives from 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.

“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,” 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.”
