Cowles told the EDA  last month he had verbally committed to the job.

Cowles told the Morgan Messenger he would be working as part of Gov. Justice’s legislative team at the state Capitol during the legislative session and as a governor’s representative for constituent services in the Eastern Panhandle.

Cowles said he would continue to work with Morgan County to transition projects to a new EDA director.

Cowles, who spent time as the House Majority Leader under former House Speaker Tim Armstead, represented the 58th Delegate District for six terms. He was upset in last June’s primary election.
