Manchin committed to creating jobs in W.Va. | The Huntington Herald Dispatch

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin is telling entrepreneurs that he is committed to creating good-paying new jobs in West Virginia.

The West Virginia Democrat spoke with small business leaders Thursday in South Charleston. He referred to the city’s Tech Park as a promising hub for creating jobs, and as an example of a public-private investment partnership.

Manchin spoke with state business leaders about challenges they face and how to best prepare young people for jobs in the high tech industry.

Manchin is traveling the state as part of his “Our Values, Our Priorities” Week and is using each day to highlight a different issue.

He is scheduled to be in Morgantown and Fairmont on Friday to discuss energy independence.
