Senator Mike Woelfel, Delegate Matt Rohrbach Recognized by West Virginia Chamber of Commerce as a Champions of Free Enterprise


Huntington, W.Va. – The West Virginia Chamber of Commerce recognized West Virginia State Senator Mike Woelfel and Delegate Matt Rohrbach as “Champions of Free Enterprise” on November 1st. The awards were presented at the Robert C. Byrd Institute in Huntington by Brian Dayton, Vice President of Policy & Advocacy for the West Virginia Chamber.

Brian Dayton stated, “This award is presented to legislators who go above and beyond to make West Virginia a better place to live, work and raise a family. That’s through better opportunities for job creation and economic development, through improved education outcomes, a better quality of life, and making West Virginia a place we can all be proud to call home and attract more people.

West Virginia Chamber President Steve Roberts commented, “Senator Mike Woelfel and Delegate Matt Rohrbach are two of the finest legislators serving our state. They are both committed to making their region and their state a better place, and both are terrific ambassadors to businesses looking to locate in our state.”

Delegate Rohrbach stated, “Businesses are quite aware of what we’ve done here, what we’ve done to attract business. These are the types of the things that are going to fundamentally change our state. The Chamber has been very instrumental in helping with this.”

Senator Woelfel added, “One of the things I like about working with the Chamber is that the Chamber is engaged in a multitude of issues. What I’m looking for are issues like poverty and social issues that matter to me, the Chamber, and everyone here in this room. The antidote for those problems is a good job with benefits. That’s always been my guiding light.”
