Wheeling, W.Va. - The West Virginia Chamber of Commerce recognized West Virginia State Senator Ryan Weld as one of its “Champions of Free Enterprise” on Friday. The award was presented at the offices of the Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce by Brian Dayton, Vice President of Policy & Advocacy for the West Virginia Chamber.

Brian Dayton stated, “Senator Weld has been one of the strongest voices in the Legislature for the enactment of policies that lead to more economic development, job creation, improved education outcomes, and better lives for the citizens of this state. His receiving this award is long overdue.”

West Virginia Chamber President Steve Roberts commented, “Ryan Weld is one of the most thoughtful individuals serving in the Legislature.
