Senator to have reps in all 55 counties

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced his office will launch Commonsense Connections Week May 6-10.

Representatives from Manchin’s office will visit all 55 counties to hear West Virginians’ priorities and concerns and offer the senator’s assistance with federal agencies through casework. Manchin will not be in attendance.

“I have always believed in the importance of retail government — bringing good government directly to our constituents, hearing their concerns and finding commonsense solutions to the issues that matter to them,” said Manchin. “Constituents come first, and for the last 13 years, my office has operated the best constituent services team in the United States Senate, ensuring the federal government works for West Virginians by handling more than 100,000 cases. This upcoming Commonsense Connections Week demonstrates my continued dedication to the hardworking people of our great State and I encourage all West Virginians to stop by at one of the locations as my staff travel to all 55 counties.”
