The seniors in Pocahontas County thought we had your ear when we met with your director of constituent services, Jason Williams, and his regional helper, Lynn Phillips.
At our meeting they were told the North Fork Senior Center in Pendleton County was about to close, and probably many more throughout the state of West Virginia. Now two months later, the closure has happened.
Over a month ago I called our Seniors Commissioner Robert Roswall in Charleston, and this man in charge said he did not know anything about Pendleton County’s closing. He said this had not been reported to him. I asked him how could he be the man in charge and not know.
After discussing this with many seniors we have come to the conclusion that our governor needs to appoint a new commissioner who might save the seniors program in our great state.
Gov. Justice, how many more closings have to happen before you make the change so we seniors will still have a program? If no change happens there will be many unhappy seniors in the state that you are running.
