Sen. Joe Manchin — who didn’t make it to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s inauguration yesterday but did stop by Monday night’s inauguration celebration at the Clay Center — is planning a statewide tour this week to discuss everything from “fixing our nation’s fiscal house” to school safety.
He kicks off the tour with a conference call with press this morning at 10 a.m. Manchin’s “No Labels” co-chairman, former Gov. John Hunstman, also will be on the callas the men discuss cutting “out-of-control government spending,” keeping children safe in school, “advancing research and technology” and helping unemployed veterans get jobs.
I’ll have a full story from that conference call on www.charlestondailymail.com soon.
At 2 p.m. today, Manchin is going to meet with “business, labor and community leaders” at Kanawha County’s W. Kent Carper Justice and Public Safety Complex to discuss his financial policies.
On Wednesday, Manchin will stop by Robert C. Byrd High School in Clarksburg to tour the school and talk with teachers, first responders and “education leaders” about school safety. Manchin will conclude his tour Friday at Marsh Fork Elementary in Raleigh County, where he’ll meet with students and teachers before heading to Concord University in Athens, where he’ll speak with college administrators, faculty, students and veterans.
