Gov. Justice declares holiday for state employees on Monday, July 3, 2023
​CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice has issued an executive order declaring that Monday, July 3, 2023, will be an official holiday for all public employees of the state.
“It’s immeasurably important to pause on Independence Day every year and remember all the freedoms we have in our great country and all the sacrifices made by our veterans and active duty military members," Gov. Justice said. "Their sacrifice is the reason we can all celebrate in peace, knowing that we live in the greatest country in the world. I hope all our state employees take time to reflect on this and spend time with their family and friends this weekend. 
"Truly, there is no better place than Almost Heaven to spend this long weekend. Whether it’s exploring one of our Mountain Rides, or discovering a hidden gem on our Waterfall Trail, I encourage everyone to get out and explore our beautiful state in some way, shape, form, or fashion.
“I thank all our state employees for their hard work and wish all West Virginians a happy Independence Day weekend!”
