According to our sister station WOWK in Charleston, after the Clinton campaign staff attempted to use the City of Logan Fire Department facilities for the Clinton upcoming visitations to the area, fire department officials contacted the Mayor of Logan about the situation. Logan officials then took matters into their own hands and sent an e-mail sent to Mike Browning, a representative for Senator Joe Manchin.
The e-mail states the following:
While we appreciate all that you and Senator Manchin’s office have done for the
City Of Logan over the years we must make the following statement:
Bill and Hillary Clinton are simply not welcome in our town. Mrs. Clinton’s anti-coal messages are the last thing our suffering town needs at this point. The policies that have been championed by people like Mrs. Clinton have all but devastated our fair town, and honestly, enough is enough. We wish them the best in their campaign, however we again state they are not welcome on our city properties. We hope that you will respectfully consider NOT visiting our community. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, 304-687-4002. I am writing this on behalf of the City Of Logan.
Logan officials feel that the Clintons will not adequately support the well-being of its voters.
On March 13, 2014 during a Democratic Town Hall event in Ohio, Hillary Clinton stated “ “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”
Logan officials have reacted to Hillary Clinton and her statement by informing Senator Manchin of their feelings towards her stance on the coal industry and do not want the Clintons within Logan city limits.
Bill Clinton is scheduled to visit Logan and Charleston on Sunday April 30, 2016. Hillary Clinton is scheduled to visit Williamson, WV on Monday May 01, 2016. More campaign stops are scheduled in West Virginia, but the details have still not been released.
