WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – The race for mayor in Wheeling is heating up with elections right around the corner.

Candidate Chris Hamm says his vision for the City of Wheeling is clear and concise: listen to the people.

If you don’t listen to the people, then you run a government that is basically run by one person—the mayor and the rest just counsel and if you’re not listening to the people, then you can make a lot of decisions that are introverted. I’ll call them self-inflicted wounds at times.
