Moundsville Community Rallies Behind Injured Mayor


Moundsville Mayor Dave Wood is still recovering in the hospital after being in a severe car accident on Tuesday.   

Now, the community is rallying around him with a special get well soon project. People have been dropping off cards with well wishes for the Mayor at the Strand Theater. Whether they knew him or not, everyone is coming together to support his recovery, because of the big impact he has made on the Moundsville community. 

“He does a lot for the community and for Moundsville. And if you’ve ever met him just as a person, he’s a wonderful person. I’ve heard a lot of good stories about him today. And there is not one bad thing you can say about this man.” said Tricia Good, a volunteer at the card drive.

If you’d like to drop off a card, they will be collected until 9 p.m. tonight at the Strand Theater on 5th St. in Moundsville.
To keep updated on the Mayor’s recovery, his family is asking everyone to follow his sister Shawna’s Facebook page for the latest updates.
