PRINCETON, W.Va. — Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., made stops in Mercer County Wednesday to announce grants, attend a grand opening and to bring her “Rise Up” program to an elementary school.
She stopped at the Mercer County Economic Development Authority office in Princeton (Mercer County War Museum Building) where she announced two grants, one to develop the Exit 1 area on I-77 in Bluefield and another to repurpose the Wood Resource Center at Exit 14 of I-77.
Capito, who serves on the appropriations and commerce committees, has been instrumental in securing the grants.
