BECKELY, W.Va. — A field of eight applicants was narrowed to three Wednesday night, as the West Virginia Legislature’s latest game of musical chairs now awaits Gov. Jim Justice’s decision on who will complete Stephen Baldwin’s two-year term in the House of Delegates.
In a span of less than a year, Baldwin moved from a freshman representing the 42nd Delegate District to a gubernatorial appointment to a seat in the Senate earlier this month, filling Ron Miller’s unexpired term after Miller accepted a position in the executive branch.
The three candidates for the post were selected by the 42nd Delegate District Democratic Executive Committee, chaired by Bill Lightner. The committee forwarded the candidates’ names to the governor at the conclusion of a Wednesday night meeting in Alderson.
The 42nd Delegate District encompasses most of Greenbrier County and portions of Monroe and Summers counties.
