PARKERSBURG, WV (WTAP)-- The campaign trail to Washington led through Parkersburg Wednesday evening.
Non-partician group "Wood County Indivisible", hosted an hour-long forum at the Parkersburg City Building.
Their guest speaker was West Virginia's first congressional district seat candidate Ralph Baxter.
Baxter has been the CEO of the law firm Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe for nearly a quarter of a century.
He says this experience in helping to gather people together to accomplish goals has helped prepare him for a role in government.
Almost two dozen citizens turned out for the event Wednesday.
