Two days after HUD put the state on watch, Thrasher, as state law requires, provid- ed a quarterly report to the Joint Legislative Committee on Flooding within his role as chairman of the State Re- siliency Office board. That report, sent to chair- men Sen. Ed Gaunch, R-Ka- nawha, and Delegate Roger Hanshaw, R-Clay, outlines some "major accomplish- ments" -- two meetings and a planning session. It does not mention the pause or the concerns from H UD. "During 2018, we are hope- ful to continue building upon the momentum of the State Resiliency Office," Thrasher wrote. "Our goal is to transi- tion from blueprints to reality and continue to develop this greatly needed resource." The letter also fails to men- tion a March 26 internal memo circulated between the Governor's Office and Com- merce. It outlines RISE's con- cem with the pause and how it affects constituents, construc- tion, long-term ramifications and federal funding matches. It states that Justice's staff or- dered the freeze Feb. 28. Some flood victims ac- cused RISE of lying to them, as well. In an April 10 email from a caseworker to Abra- ham, Thompson, Thrasher and others, the caseworker relayed complaints from a flood victim having trouble communicating with RISE after being approved for re- lief in July 2017. "She says there has been one excuse after another and she's frustrated," the case- worker said. "Her home was condemned and all of the contents removed. [She] was told RISE WV would take care of the demolition, but her flood damaged home re- mains on her property. [She] told me presently the 29-foot camper has no water and no heat. She says she is told one lie after another and would like some answers." Communications staff for Thrasher did not respond to repeated inquiries and inter- view requests for this report. Abraham said appropriate discipline would come in due time. - This story was distributed by the West Virginia Press Association June 19 Annual Chamber Hollywood Casino ballroom 6 to 9 p.m. July 10 MVB Chamber Mixer Location, time TBD PROUDLY SERVING JEFFERSON COUNTY FOR OVER 56 YEARS July 26 Membership Meeting Regional Airport, time TBD E g/ 3 ClhlJl$ OF THE EASTERN PANHANDLE a!l, Vanice Co!asat 304-728-3143 I
