Tomblin appoints Marcum as Kominar replacement

Posted: Updated:

Justin J. Marcum of Williamson was appointed Monday by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin to fill the vacancy in the 20th District of the West Virginia House of Delegates that occurred when former Delegate K. Steve Kominar, a Democrat, resigned last month.

"Justin is a young man who has displayed a passion for public service," 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 will represent the 20th Delegate District, which includes parts of Mingo and Wayne counties. He had not registered for candidacy for any office with the West Virginia Secretary of State's Office, but he has a Facebook fan page set up for "Justin Marcum for House – 20th District."

Marcum graduated from Marshall University in 2007 and the Appalachian School of Law in 2011. He is a former underground coal miner and Sunday school teacher and has been commissioned as a Kentucky Colonel, according to information from Tomblin's office.

Marcum is a Beni Kedem Shriner and a Kiwanis Club volunteer.
