MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Saying he wants to help continue the economic prosperity in the Eastern Panhandle, West Virginia State Sen. Harry Dugan announced Tuesday night he will be running for a second term in 1998.
"My goal in the State Senate is to work for a strong business climate so that state government does not stand in the way of progress," Dugan said during a reception at the Comfort Inn attended by about 70 supporters.
"The one thing we need desperately here in the Panhandle is infrastructure," said Dugan, R-Berkeley, after his announcement. In particular he noted the need for an interchange to connect City Hospital in Martinsburg to Interstate 81.
