Charleston, W.Va. – West Virginia Secretary of State and U.S. Senate nominee Natalie Tennant will answer questions about her vision for West Virginia’s future at the ‘Our Children, Our Future’ Candidate Forum, Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 6:30 p.m., at the Culture Center in Charleston. The forum is free and open to the public.

Tennant’s campaign staff provided the following information:
Tennant’s top priority in the United States Senate will be to create good-paying jobs and opportunities for West Virginia. Tennant unveiled her Jobs and Business Agenda this summer to outline specific proposals to create jobs through energy, manufacturing, and research and technology. Tennant has called for raising the federal minimum wage because no one who works a full-time job should struggle to make ends meet or support their family (read here).
Tennant believes that bringing good-paying jobs and opportunities to West Virginia will not be possible without investing in West Virginia’s greatest resource: its people. Tennant called for investing in education, from Head Start to higher education, in her Education Agenda to provide West Virginians with the skills needed for the jobs of tomorrow. Tennant also released a Drug Abuse Solutions Agenda to offer solutions to combat the drug abuse crisis that has devastated communities across West Virginia.
