HINTON (WVVA) - Sen. Joe Manchin visited Summers County Tuesday.

The Democrat met with city and county officials in the county to tour the new section of the New River Scenic Highway and the Bluestone Lake Access Project.

Manchin then met with local residents at the Hinton Dairy Queen.

Manchin discussed the future of Hinton and West Virginia as a whole. He responded to questions from community members regarding student loans, gun control and social security.

"When you have communities being ravaged whether by drugs, or by a lack of education attainment or lack of opportunities and jobs, or infrastructure, or to enjoy the quality of life…that's what we have to work together on." Manchin said.
