Congressman David McKinley made a special stop in Clarksburg on Wednesday to hear some local concerns before he makes his way back to Washington.
It's all part of his small business roundtable discussions. Congressman McKinley met with city officials to discuss ways he can help our local towns and communities grow.
Some of the issues discussed were the EPA's war on coal and the toll that this will take on the Mountain State. Town officials are worried that the natural gas industry could be hit hard next and this could cause the economy here to suffer .
McKinley says he hopes he can create solutions by hearing what people have to say.
"We only have the knowledge that you share with us. Each person that we talk to, each group that we meet with has some innate sense of what right and wrong and what's going to help them in their community. It's important for us to hear that and I take that message back and it's worked," said Congressman McKinley.
The congressman said he's also concerned about the lack of funding given to cities for water and sewer lines. More discussions will be held in the coming weeks for citizens to voice their concerns.
