We can always tell when election time rolls around by the many signs that dot the landscape. Many of you are running for re-election, including me, and campaign signs are a big part of the process. Name recognition is a major part of campaign and keeping your name in front of people is so very important. Putting up signs is a great way to do that.

The new siding is up, and interior improvements have been proceeding on schedule. The floors have been sanded, the upstairs painting is nearly done, electrical updates have been made, and the parking lot has been repaved. There is some work that still remains to be done inside – the kitchen still has a way to go, the floors still need to be finished, bathroom counters still need to be replaced, and the landscaping needs to be tidied up.

We will keep you posted as work progresses!

CCAWV is gearing up for another issue of “The Resourcer.” Our biannual magazine will be published in time for our upcoming Legislative Conference in January. It is our goal to make each issue better – more informative and robust than he last! Our last issue dealt with preparedness, providing tips and ideas on how to be prepared in the event of an emergency. We appreciated all the contributions we got, and hope to collect even more for the winter issue.

The upcoming issue will focus on Economic Development in West Virginia’s counties. Does your county have a success story you’d like to share with fellow county officials? Maybe you have an active economic development authority whose work you think should be highlighted! Please feel free to submit an article, or encourage your fellow local leaders to do so. We are hoping to showcase the vital role County Commissioners play in West Virginia’s economic development. This is your chance to shine!
