MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Del. John Overington, R-Berkeley, announced that he will hold a town meeting Monday, April 26, at the Bedington Ruritan building to discuss legislation passed by lawmakers in the 60-day session and a possible special session on education.

The meeting will be from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Ruritan building, which is south of Bedington Crossroads on the west side of U.S. 11. and about three miles north of Berkeley Plaza.

Overington said in a news release that he is seeking suggestions to pass on to Gov. Joe Manchin to include in the call for the special session, which the delegate said could happen next month.

Other topics for the town meeting will include an update on Census 2010 and the 2009 figures that were released earlier this month. He also plans to provide an update on this year's contest to find the largest oak tree in the Eastern Panhandle.


"This is my 26th year of holding town meetings, and I enjoy the interaction and input both before and after the legislative session," Overington said in the news release.

"I welcome input on topics such as jobs and economic development, education, taxes, heath care, crime, environment, roads, hunting and other topics."
