Ron Fragale wasn’t out of the Legislature for long.
Gov. Tomblin has appointed Fragale, who lost his re-election bid to the House of Delegates representing Harrison County last November, to fill an open seat.
Fragale, a Democrat, will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Sam Cann, who the Governor appointed to fill a vacancy in the state Senate.
“Ron’s twenty-year history of public service will once again be a valuable asset to the people of the 48th District,” Tomblin said. “I look forward to working with him to put West Virginia first when the Legislature convenes later this month.
Fragale, 62, has served 10 terms in the House.
