Justin J. Marcum has been appointed to the vacancy in the 20th District of the West Virginia House of Delegates by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin Monday.

Marcum will finish the remainder of former Del. K. Steve Kominar's term, who resigned last night. He will be representing Mingo and Wayne counties.

"Justin is a young man who has displayed a passion for public service," Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said in a news release. "As an Assistant County Prosecutor as well as an elected member of the West Virginia Democratic State Executive Committee, 6th district, Justin has shown he values the ability and the rewards of working for the benefit of others. Such a trait will serve the people of the 20th Delegate District well."

Marcum is a graduate of Marshall University and the Appalachian School of Law and is currently a Mingo County Prosecuting Attorney. He has also worked in the past as an underground coal miner.
