Huntington Nostalgic for the Golden Days of Economic Prosperity

Huntington’s Resident Philip Frank: A Man of Experience Shares His Concerns and Vision for the Future of West Virginia

Philip Frank, a 61-year-old resident of Huntington, strolled down Third Avenue with a sack filled with a jar of peanut butter and a block of cheese. He has spent his entire life in the city, as his father once owned a grocery store on Fourth Avenue. The area where the store used to be is now brimming with college bars and tattoo shops after it closed in 1975.

As he walked past the polling stations, Frank voiced his concerns about public safety and the state of the roads. He lamented that while West Virginia is a good state, it needs more support.

Frank also discussed his experience in the tech industry, emphasizing the need for revitalizing businesses in town. While he acknowledged recent growth in Huntington, he believed there was still room for improvement and that it would take time to get things back to how they used to be.

Despite the inclement weather, Frank remained optimistic about the changes needed not only in Huntington but also in West Virginia as a whole. As he continued on his way, he reflected on how far he had come and what still lay ahead for him and the state he loved.
