City Manager, Chad Edwards, was recently appointed to the Harrison County Development Authority, where according to Patsy Trecost, a Harrison county commissioner, Edwards will be involved to help Shinnston for development and growth.
Edwards will be working closely with the county’s elected leaders to aid in “growing West Virginia,” Trecost said, who added that Edwards’ new role also “gives him more opportunities” when it comes to building economic stability and new business possibilities for Shinnston. Edwards will have a louder voice in the county, letting people know what he’s doing for the city, such as tearing down dilapidated properties, and encouraging others to invest in not only the city but also the state.
Trecost said that Edwards is a city manager who is truly invested in his job. “Shinnston is lucky to have him,” Trecost said.
