Manchin to hold town hall meetings on drug abuse during 5-county tour


CHARLESTON, West Virginia — U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin plans to hold three town hall meetings on drug abuse this week.

The meetings are part of a five-county tour that also will focus on economic development.

Two town hall meetings are scheduled for Tuesday in Wheeling and Parkersburg. The third meeting will be held on Wednesday in Huntington.

Manchin's office says the West Virginia Democrat also will deliver a legislative update at Alderson Broaddus University on Wednesday. On Thursday, he's scheduled to deliver the keynote address at the 25th Annual Teaming to Win Conference in Davis.
