WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Evan Jenkins (R-W.Va.) issued the following statement ahead of First Lady Melania Trump’s planned visit to Lily’s Place and Huntington on Tuesday:

“I look forward to welcoming our first lady to Huntington on Tuesday and thanking her for her interest in addressing the opioid crisis, which affects so many West Virginians. I helped start Lily’s Place to give these newborns a chance at a healthy start at life. Melania Trump heard from Lily’s Place Executive Director Rebecca Crowder last month during a White House event, and now she will be able to see this model of care for herself. I welcome the first lady’s involvement in this critical issue and look forward to working with her and President Trump to combat the opioid crisis,” Rep. Jenkins said.
