FAIRMONT -

West Virginia's Attorney General Patrick Morrisey was in Fairmont on Monday evening for a town hall-style meeting.

Morrisey is making his rounds around the state to talk with residents about their concerns.

Residents filled the Valley Volunteer Fire Department to discuss problems they have and asked questions they wanted answers to.

Morrisey also used the town hall meeting to explain what his office is working on.

"We're trying to really have a top priority of focusing on economic growth in the state of West Virginia. The office of Attorney General can play a positive role in advancing economic growth. So we'll be talking about what the AG's office can do to help counties like Marion, and other parts around the state," said Morrisey.

Morrisey also used the meeting to discuss how to bring jobs to West Virginia and the state's drug abuse problem.

He said he has heard different concerns and questions from the different counties, and that each area has unique problems.

Morrisey will be traveling to various other counties in the area to do host similar meetings.

Morrisey will be traveling to Wetzel County next to have a town hall meeting there.
