CHARLESTON, WV – The Herbert Henderson Office of Minority Affairs (HHOMA) will hold its fourth Listening Tour event this year in the City of Ranson. The tour stop will be held Tuesday, Aug. 13, at 6 p.m. in the Ranson Civic Center: 432 W. Second Avenue.

“This is an opportunity for citizens to ask questions and get answers,” Executive Director of HHOMA Jill Upson said. “We want to hear directly from the people of our state. We want to learn about their concerns, their needs and their ideas.”

HHOMA was previously in Ranson in May for the sixth annual Minority Business Expo and featured exhibits, a keynote address from the U.S. Small Business Administration Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator, Michelle Christian, and a workshop led by West Virginia Secretary of State Andrew “Mac” Warner.
