GOP Freshmen Hone Their Message

Does the Republican Party have a messaging problem? Members of the House freshman class seem to think so. And in order to try and remedy the situation, seven of them met on Thursday morning in a Longworth House Office Building conference room, to discuss what they needed to be better at communicating to the American people. They also invited one member of the media to hear them message about messaging. It was all very "meta." Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C., organized the meeting with Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Morgan Griffith of Virginia, Steve Southerland of Florida, Cory Gardner of ...

Congr. working to save Roanoke, Lynchburg mail proces.center

Sometime after May 15th the Roanoke and Lynchburg mail processing plants will close. In a release the postal service says the May 15th moratorium was to give Congress time to enact legislation. Back in November, 9th District Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-Salem) told WSLS he was co-sponsoring a bill, that would repeal the requirement forcing the Postal Service to pay health benefits up front for 75 years, and in turn save money and prevent closures. That bill is still in committee. So we went back to Griffith to ask him, did Congress not do enough? "Could we have encouraged them to take it ...

Griffith Announces Federal Designation for Pulaski County and Wythe County to Help Combat Drug Trafficking
Friday, October 14, 2016 - Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) announced that Pulaski County and Wythe County have been designated as part of the Appalachia High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP).   This designation will allow local agencies to benefit from initiatives to reduce drug use, and receive federal resources to further develop and coordinate drug control efforts among federal, state, and local law enforcement officials. Griffith said, “I am glad that Pulaski County and Wythe County have been designated as part of the HIDTA; however, it is unfortunate that illegal drugs are a pressing issue here in Southwest Virginia.  The trafficking and abuse of drugs are a serious cause for concern.  Due to this concern, I supported the petition for Pulaski and Wythe to receive this designation, so local law enforcement and others diligently fighting the drug crisis will be able to utilize the resources associ
Congressman Griffith's Weekly E-Newsletter 10.17.16
Limestone, Granite, and Coal, Oh Mine! Last week, I highlighted manufacturing in the Ninth District, one of the ways a nation builds wealth.  Mining is another way to build wealth, and across the District there are a variety of mined commodities. There is a long history of mining in our region, which has provided employment, economic growth, and a way of life.  In the Ninth District, in addition to coal, there are active mining permits for a variety of substances including stone such as granite, quartzite, lime, limestone, and sandstone, clay and shale, sand and gravel, salt, as well as natural gas, according to data provided by the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy (DMME), as of April 2016.  Virginia has an interesting and unique geological history, particularly in Southwest Virginia.  Over time, geological events have left opportunities for us to mine and develop these rocks into much needed resources. The stone in Southwest Virginia, granit

Manufacturing Economic Growth Friday, October 7 was National Manufacturing Day.  Manufacturing is one of the ways a nation builds wealth.  This year, as part of National Manufacturing Day, I visited Celanese in Giles County and Tadano Mantis in Richlands.   I was able to tour the new boiler area at Celanese, which provides power to produce cellulose acetate tow, used for cigarette tow.  At Tadano Mantis, I was able to view the facilities where they design and construct large cranes.  These, and other manufacturing companies, provide goods and jobs that contribute to the economic growth of the Ninth District, as well as the economic growth of our nation. Nations can only build wealth in a few ways.  Wealth can be built by manufacturing goods, by extracting minerals and energy from the Earth, by agriculture and raising it off the land, or by stealing it from other countries.  Since we don’t have any intention of stealing wealth from other co
