Capito addresses coal summit, tours Mountain Steer Meat Company

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, (WVDN) – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito today made two stops in Greenbrier County Wednesday, addressing a coal leadership summit, followed by a tour of Mountain Steer Meat Company.

First, Capito spoke at a coal leadership summit at The Greenbrier to address coal advocates, industry leaders, and elected officials from across West Virginia and the country.

“West Virginia is proud to power our country, and the world with coal,” Capito said. “Unfortunately, since the Biden administration is working overtime to make the United States less energy independent, we must take it upon ourselves to take a united approach in defending miners, employers, and coal communities across our state. This week’s summit is a great opportunity for us to come up with solutions and strategies that stand up for West Virginia coal now and in the future.”

Capito then visited Mountain Steer Meat Company to tour their facilities and meet with owners James Tuckwiller and Frank Ford.

“Farming is oftentimes a family business, and that’s the case with Mountain Steer Meat Company,” Capito said. “During the pandemic, the Tuckwillers and Fords, two local families, came up with an innovative approach to improve and grow the meat processing business right here in Greenbrier County. It was a pleasure to tour their facilities today and I’m looking forward to seeing their operations expand and serve the surrounding area for years to come.”

“It is a real honor to show Senator Capito the hard work we’ve put into the development of this facility. We are passionate about the concept of helping West Virginian’s feed themselves, so to have interest from Senator Capito is a privilege,” James Tuckwiller, owner of Mountain Steer Meat Company, said.
