Take a walk with Huntington Mayor Steve Williams
HUNTINGTON, WV (WOWK) – Many traditions were broken over the past year due to the pandemic, but not all have been forgotten.
Since 2015, Mayor Steve Williams and representatives of his administration have walked with residents of the nine districts of City Council. Last year the streets were empty and this annual event fell on the list of many canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Fortunately, this event is back! Mayor Williams says it’s been too long since they last hosted this event.
We can use that time so that a board member and I can meet people and they usually wait along the way wanting to report something. It’s a great experience.

At the corner of Norway Avenue and Cedar Street in Huntington, the mayor and other city officials set out to walk the neighborhood for the first time since before the pandemic.
The purpose of these walks is not only to have this close interaction with the neighbors, but also to promote a healthier lifestyle. The mayor and city officials walked around the neighborhood for just over an hour and had meaningful conversations with each person who also came for a walk.
