PARKERSBURG, W.Va. — Former House of Delegates member Tom Azinger was appointed Thursday night by the Wood County Republican Party Executive Committee to replace Frank Deem, who passed away Wednesday, on the Nov. 6 general election ballot for the House District 10 seat.
Azinger was selected in a unanimous vote of the 12 executive committee members during an emergency meeting, Wood County GOP Chairman Rob Cornelius said.
It was necessary to fill Deem’s spot on the ballot as soon as possible because of changes needed to absentee, early and electronic voting methods in Wood County, Cornelius said.
