Thank you, Delegate Swartzmiller

To the Editor,

I just want to express publicly, my sincere thanks and gratitude to Hancock County Delegate Randy Swartzmiller, for all of his efforts in helping get Culler Road in Weirton paved. A road whose physical condition deteriorated over the last two years, has finally been completed.

The paving situation took an unexpected twist when, late last year, it was discovered that Culler Road wasn’t on the paving schedule for 2018. In early December, I contacted Randy before he headed to Charleston. He told me he was already aware of the problem and was determined to focus on, not just Culler Road, but all roads in the Northern Panhandle.

Shortly after taking office, he made roads his priority, just as he said he would while campaigning. He kept me informed about the progress throughout the summer, and finally after the bid was released, said work would begin sometime in October.

For all the people who traveled Culler Road over the last 18 months, our time certainly has come. We now have a wonderful, smooth road just before the start of the holiday season. I would also like to thank West Virginia Department of Highways District 6 managers, engineers and staff for staying on top of this project and getting it properly bid out. Also, a special thank you to the paving company responsible for doing the work. You did it at night so as not to inconvenience our daily commutes. Great job!

So, thank you again Randy for keeping focus and staying on top of all the issues for the citizens of Brooke and Hancock counties.
