West Virginia State Delegate Passes Away
State Delegate Tony Lewis of Preston died of cancer on Sunday, September 24, 2017.
In a statement, Speaker Tim Armstead said, “He was a devoted family man, and a faithful and hard-working public servant. Tony’s dedication and work ethic left a lasting impression on all of us who worked with him. His strong character was never more apparent than during the recent special session, as Tony continued to come to Charleston and speak up for his district while receiving treatment for his cancer.”
Preston County’s Republican executive committee will nominate three possible replacements for Gov. Jim Justice to choose to replace Lewis.
