Updated 40 weeks ago From Press Release
CHARLESTON - West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced today he will host Jobs Summit town hall meetings in Wayne and Cabell counties on July 11.
 The Wayne County town hall meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Wayne County Public Library in Kenova, 1200 Oak St. The Cabell County town hall meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Cabell County Public Library in Huntington, 455 Ninth Street Plaza. Both events are open to the public.

“Cabell and Wayne counties, like many other West Virginia counties, have faced some difficult economic challenges in recent years. These town hall meetings are designed to discuss what stumbling blocks exist that keep businesses from growing or locating in the county and how the Attorney General’s Office may help to remove some of those barriers”, Morrisey stated.

“Economic growth is not a Democrat versus Republican issue, and helping to expand the economies of Cabell and Wayne counties should not be a partisan issue, either”, he added. “That’s why we hope everyone will come to these town hall meetings to share thoughts, ideas and concerns they have”.

The town hall meetings are part of a statewide Jobs Summit and Listening Tour the Office of the Attorney General announced in April. At that time, Attorney General Morrisey said his Office can and should play a role in improving West Virginia’s business climate by reviewing federal and state regulations to determine if any improvements can be made.

“I will take any necessary action to help move our economy forward, as West Virginians cannot afford for our state to fall further behind” Morrisey said“. The Attorney General possesses the legal power - through both legal opinions and legal actions - to significantly improve West Virginia’s business and regulatory climate, and my ultimate goal is to help West Virginia reach its economic potential”.

Individuals interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP by contacting the Office at 304-558-2021 or by e-mailing communications@wvago.gov.
