Cabell’s priorities during the 2023-24 legislative session include eliminating the so-called “Rain Tax,” repairing roads and bridges, protecting all life, preserving green spaces, supporting the agricultural community and assisting local veterans.
Cabell plans to open district offices soon in Conyngham and Dallas to assist district residents.
“The members of my staff have years of experience in other district offices, and I am fortunate they have agreed to work with me,” Cabell added. “We look forward to helping anyone who has a state-related matter they may encounter. Residents are encouraged to stop by or give us a call once the offices are open for business.”
