New St. Albans Councilman Vows To Start Neighborhood Watch In Ward 5

St. Albans City Council seats new ward 5 councilmember who vows to start a neighborhood watch.

From The Charleston Gazette, February 4 2014:
"City Council also voted 6-5 for Christopher Withrow as the new Ward 5 council member. The Ward 5 seat was open since December, when Councilman Dan Cain Sr. resigned abruptly.
Withrow, a St. Albans native and graduate of West Virginia State University, retired from a career in the U.S. Navy in 2009. He said that he wants to form a neighborhood watch in Ward 5.
'I will go door to door and meet every individual. I'll find out what we're doing right and what we're doing wrong. I can give a voice to those I would have the privilege and honor of serving,' Withrow declared, just prior to the vote.
Immediately thereafter, Withrow was sworn into office by Callaway and seated with City Council."

NOTE: Naydeen Wolf and I met with Chris Withrow a few weeks ago and told him that if he wants to do some work and is willing to let us help, the new citywide Neighborhood Watch Advisory Board will not allow him to fail. 

Because of the citywide neighborhood watch advisory board there is no excuse for any St. Albans ward not to have a neighborhood watch if (a) they ask for help and (b) they are willing to do some work.
