CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) — Former Delegate Larry Pack is seeking the Republican nomination for West Virginia State Treasurer.

Pack is currently a senior advisor to Republican Governor Jim Justice. He has also been a certified public accountant and recently sold a large healthcare company he owned.

Pack says the most important part of being treasurer is to manage the state’s money wisely.

“It’s my finance background. Been a CPA, always helping small businesses, always been around numbers,” Pack says. “Even on the business side, that’s just an area that attracts me: budgets, finances, spending money properly.”

Currently, the treasurer’s position is open because the current officeholder, Riley Moore, is running for Congress in the second district.
