Congressman Alex Mooney (WV-2) Sworn in to Represent West Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District

WASHINGTON, DC – Republican Congressman Alex Mooney (WV-2) was sworn in to his first term in office today by Speaker John Boehner at the U.S. Capitol.

"I want to humbly thank the people of the 2nd congressional district of West Virginia for entrusting me with the honor of representing them in the Congress of the United States.  Our nation and the state of West Virginia face many important hurdles.  I look forward to bringing West Virginian values to the national conversation on these issues.”

“West Virginia is blessed to be abundant in natural resources and patriotic citizens.  I will work hard every day for West Virginian priorities and to bring jobs back to our state.  I intend to spend much of my time in office back home in Charles Town with my wife and children, rather than in Washington, close to the needs of the citizens I have been elected to serve.”

Congressman Mooney was elected to represent West Virginia’s 2nd congressional district on November 4, 2014 and has been appointed to serve on two important and influential committees: the House Committee on Natural Resources and the House Committee on the Budget.

The 2nd congressional district of West Virginia includes the counties of: Berkeley, Braxton, Calhoun, Clay, Hampshire, Hardy, Jackson, Jefferson, Kanawha, Lewis, Morgan, Pendleton, Putnam, Randolph, Roane, Upshur and Wirt.
