U.S. Senator Capito Talks Economic Development in Wyoming County

WYOMING COUNTY, W.Va. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) made multiple stops in southern West Virginia on Thursday to discuss economic development, mark the completion of the Elkhorn Phase II Water Project, discuss funding she secured to provide clean water service to local households, and visit a local food bank.

Senator Capito met with Christy Laxton, Executive Director of the Wyoming County Economic Development Authority in Pineville, W.Va. to discuss the latest efforts to spur future investments and bring jobs to the region.

“Whether it’s providing safe, clean drinking water to our residents, driving economic development in this region, or ensuring our neighbors in need are taken care of, today’s stops highlighted the best of West Virginia’s future,” Senator Capito said. “The southern part of our state has so much to offer, and I’m proud of the local efforts underway to continue improving the lives of working families. I’ve worked closely with city, county, and business leaders to find ways to support critical projects like the ones we saw today, and will continue to do so as they are completed and begin to have an impact on our communities.”
