Gov. Jim Justice has appointed a new member of the House of Delegates.
Heather Glasko-Tully of Summersville has been named to represent the 41st District, covering parts of Nicholas and Greenbrier counties.
Glasko-Tully fills the vacancy created by the resignation of Delegate Jordan Hill.
Glasko-Tully was already a Republican candidate for the House of Delegates and had no primary opposition. In the General Election, she will face Duane Bragg, a Democrat.
An intensive care unit bedside nurse for 13 years, Glasko-Tully was among the 2017 recipients of the Future of Nursing WV’s “40 Under 40” award.
Glasko-Tully began working as a family nurse practitioner in 2018. She is a member of the West Virginia Nurses Association, American Nurses Association and the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses.
“I am very appreciative of Governor Justice for this appointment. It is a tremendous honor to be selected to represent the citizens of a community that I love with all my heart,” Glasko-Tully stated.
“I’m excited to be able to use my skills and knowledge of the healthcare field to make the necessary changes we need to promote the health and well-being of all West Virginians. I’m also going to work to help make our education system the very best it can be.”
Hill announced last month he would resign from the Legislature because a job change would require moving out of district. He had already planned not to run again for re-election.
