Christmas Message from Governor Justice

Charleston, WV – What a great year 2017 has been, and what a great time it is to be a West Virginian. Cathy and I are thankful this holiday season to spend time with our family and friends, especially our new grandson.

Christmas is a time to give thanks, and also a time to give back. From the bottom of our hearts we thank all the West Virginians who volunteer their time and effort to help those in need. That spirit is what Christmas is all about.

This Christmas season we remember those serving our country and pray they all make it home safely. They make an incredible sacrifice for us, and we owe them a huge debt of gratitude.

We encourage you to reach out to those around you that you know are struggling or hurting and offer them help and prayers. We hope that the spirit of the season and God’s love will be with all of you this Christmas season.

Cathy and I want to wish every West Virginian a Merry Christmas. We pray every day that the Good Lord will continue to bless our great state and our great people.
