New delegate appointed to serve Raleigh and Wyoming counties

Posted:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WVVA) Raleigh and Wyoming counties have new representation in the West Virginia House of Delegates. 

Del. Chanda Adkins was appointed by Governor Jim Justice to fill former Republican Del. Lynn Arvon's seat in the 31st District. Arvon was appointed to fill former Sen. Jeff Mullins' seat in the West Virginia Senate in early February. 

Del. Adkins is a Republican who works as a pharmacist in Raleigh County. She also volunteers her time as a substitute teacher and basketball coach at her kids' school. 

"I want the public to know I came here with a heart to serve. I've served in other avenues at my children's school and I just want to do a good job for the 31st District."

Del. Akins has also filed the necessary paperwork to run for the seat when it comes up again in the 2018 election.
