Manchin Statement On The Death Of Raymond L. Starkey At Marshall County Mine

U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today released the following statement on the death of coal miner, Raymond L. Starkey, last night in the Murray Energy Marshall County mine.

“Gayle and I send our deepest sympathies to Raymond L. Starkey’s family and loved ones and we, along with all West Virginians, will keep them in our prayers during this difficult time. Our coal miners risk their lives every day to power our nation and we are forever grateful for their sacrifices and contributions to our great country. It is difficult to hear of someone so young leaving us too soon, especially during this special time of year. This is truly a tragic loss for all of West Virginia.”
