Manchin Congratulates Huntington For Being Named Nicest Place In West Virginia

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) congratulated Huntington for being named the nicest place in West Virginia by Readers Digest and for being a finalist for the nicest place in America.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are always searching for positive stories that give us hope for West Virginia and her people. I am incredibly proud of Huntington for being named the nicest place in West Virginia, especially Mayor Steve Williams, the My Huntington Steering Committee, first responders, city employees, and the citizens of Huntington who worked together on such a great initiative and represent our state well. The Huntington community came together to support their local businesses and their healthcare providers who are working tirelessly to care for their fellow West Virginians in the middle of a global health crisis. Their teamwork and resilience in raising thousands of dollars and feeding so many is impressive and encouraging that even during these difficult times, our state is resilient. Huntington’s collaboration is an inspiration to the rest of the state and I look forward to hearing about more projects like these as we continue to respond to the pandemic together,” said Senator Manchin.
