West Virginia State Senators begin mobile office hours tour
HANCOCK COUNTY, W. Va. —
West Virginia State Senators Ryan Ferns and Ryan Weld made their first stop on their mobile office hours tour.
Both senators plan on making a series of stops across the region to make themselves available to residents to answer any questions they may have, or to just start a dialogue about what is going on in the community so they can be more informed.
Tuesday's stop was in New Cumberland, where one of the topics discussed was issues with Route 2.
“The folks here in New Cumberland obviously know it better than anybody. They know the traffic flow. They know what's going to work. They know the land inside and out, and just trying to get that conveyed to the folks at DOH, and make sure they're hearing the voices of the people up here who have the expertise is, I think, critical," says Sen. Ryan Ferns.
“We think about the northern panhandle in general, and issues we might have and face as a region, but it's important to get down to the singular level of the town, or the city, because everybody has a unique problem," says Sen. Ryan Weld.
Weld added that both he and Ferns will hold their next mobile office hours session in Wellsburg on Thursday from 4pm to 6pm in council chambers.
