"Map to Prosperity" is a long-term project of The State Journal that will deeply examine government and business in West Virginia — both the perceptions and the reality. This project will look for meaningful ways to guide the state toward the real and lasting changes that could correct the course that has kept the state out of the reach of prosperity for many years. 

Future topics in coming months may include tax policy, technology and education. If you would like to comment on the series or suggest ideas for future articles, drop us a line at news@statejournal.com or contribute to the conversation on social media with the hashtag #WVMap.

And look for corresponding reports from WOWK-TV reporter Ariel Rothfield at 5:30 p.m. each Thursday throughout the series on West Virginia Tonight Live, which airs on every West Virginia Media station.
