Manchin staff will make 100 stops in week

U.S. Senator Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., will launch the sixth “Commonsense Connections” Week, beginning Tuesday.

Representatives from Manchin’s office will travel to nearly 100 stops across West Virginia to meet with constituents, hear their priorities and concerns, and gather their feedback.

“I have always believed that bringing government directly to our citizens and hearing their concerns is vital to making a positive difference in our West Virginia communities,” Manchin said. “West Virginians should have access to the resources they need, and making government responsive to its citizens is what ‘Commonsense Connections’ is all about.”

Manchin launched his first “Commonsense Connections” Week in February 2011, when representatives from his office traveled to all 55 counties in the state.

Manchin will not be in attendance for these events.
