McDowell County put it's future in coal. Coal is "NO" longer King.

McDowell is the poorest County in America.

I feel sorry for the County.

I still haven't seen anything that's been altered/improved.

Looks like they would work together and make the County a better place.

McDowell has always been an armpit, even when coal boomed. Now it is a polluted trash dump with no economy, a corrupt government and a haven for trailer trapped drug addicts.

McDowell County has many problems.

Driving around the County taking picture's of all the abandon Real Estate doesn't help the Reconnecting McDowell.

Why doesn't the State/County tear them down?

Is the reconnecting project just Talk or a Joke?

I would really like to see the County get back on track with the rest of our Country.
