Advocacy

Championing Marion County Businesses

This division’s objectives include communicating business positions on legislative issues to elected officials, offering guidance for monitoring business legislation and serving as a liaison between government and the local business community. The MCCC works in cooperation with the small cities in Marion County to find way of improving services and reducing the costs associated with those services. It is the belief of the MCCC that we will only realize our potential by working together. The Governmental Affairs Division supports legislation covering a variety of subjects including:

  • The MCCC supports the initiatives of both Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community and Technical College to avoid higher education budget cuts for the 2015 Legislative Session.
  • The MCCC supports the West Virginia High Technology Consortium Foundation in their efforts to eliminate or restructure the WVEDA Loan and/or obtain additional funding from state sources to sustain the grouth in the I-79 Technology Park
  • The MCCC supports the completion of the 3rd Street Bridge extension, bringing direct traffic to Locust Ave.
  • MCCC supports an analysis of Marion County Schools and the benefits of paper recycling initiative for all public schools.
  • MCCC supports improvement and enhancement of the Marion County’s rail trail.
