CHARLESTON, West Virginia -

Dozens of people living in our region said they're sick and tired of the partial government shut down, so they took to the streets to talk about it Tuesday. 

A protest was staged outside of Congresswoman Shelly Moore Capito's office in Kanawha City.  Some were there protesting her politics, others were there just to voice their opinions.  Many of the protestors were with the American Federation of Government Employees.
  
One man who works for the Army Corps of Engineers says he's had enough.  "We're just tired of listening to them fighter over things, that to us, really don't matter," said Damian Galish.  "Just get it over with.  Do your jobs and let us do ours."

The protestors taped a copy of a cease and desist order to Congresswoman Capito's office door.
