CHARLESTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Mike Stuart issued the following statement in recognition of West Virginia Day:

“On June 20, 1863, the greatest state in the greatest nation on earth was born out of struggle as a beacon to freedom and individual liberty. We have certainly struggled at times along our path but West Virginia remains a tremendous beacon for freedom and liberty with amazing economic potential today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR BELOVED WEST VIRGINIA!  A great history with only brighter, bigger, bolder days ahead. Our mantra must be: Bold in vision; Bold in purpose. We must compete and we must compete to win. Greatness is at our doorstep if we choose to embrace it.  Our brightest days are surely ahead.

I’m always proud to be a West Virginian in these mountains, along these ‘Country Roads’, among our great people.  

Take time today to appreciate our blessings and our opportunities on this special day.
