“I want to see the city grow, attract, and support businesses. Oak Hill has so much potential with its proximity to the New River Gorge and its location along the Route 19 Corridor. I want to see Oak Hill be the family friendly destination for visitors to the New River G Gorge National Park. In our spare time, my wife and I enjoy taking our boys to one of the several city parks or biking along the
rail trail. We love Oak Hill because of its proximity to the New River and all the exciting places the area offers for exploring outdoors.”
