Grand opening on August 25th.
'We The People of Jefferson County' will now be able to offer more services to the West Virginia community. "For the first time, we are officially opening up an office, here in Jefferson County," said Patricia Rucker, president of the West Virginia Tea Party. The organization, which has been in existence for about 3 years, offers citizens more involvement with their government. "I think for too long, the American people have just stood by and elected people every four or 2 years, and then just didn't do anything else, and the politicians have taken advantage of that, to do all sorts of things that they shouldn't," continued Rucker.
The office, which will serve Jefferson, Berkeley and Morgan Counties, will be located on Ruland Drive, right behind the DMV office, in Kearneysville. It will be staffed by volunteers.
A grand opening will be held on August 25th, from 4-6 p.m. and everyone is invited. John Raese, who is running for Senate, will be there, and other candidates. There will be free food, drinks, and family, friendly entertainment.
If you would like to volunteer or have questions, you can call 304-582-6874.
