HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — West Virginia Del. Chuck Romine, R-Cabell, has announced that he submitted his resignation from the House of Delegates on Friday, effective July 13, for health and personal reasons.
Romine said in his resignation letter to Speaker of the House Tim Armstead, R-Kanawha, that he and his wife moved to a retirement community that is outside of the 16th District.
“I have been honored and blessed to have served five terms in the House over a 50-year period,” Romine said in his resignation letter. “The people that I have met and worked with over the years have become lifelong friends. Having the opportunity to be a part of this body has been a privilege that few people in our great state get to experience. To serve the people of West Virginia for most of 10 years has been a singular honor.”
