Newly-appointed delegate hopes to bring her healthcare experience to the House of Delegates

SUMMERSVILLE, WV (WOAY) – Governor Justice recently appointed a Summersville woman to fill Delegate Jordan Hill’s 41st District seat in the House of Delegates.

Heather Glasko-Tully recently had great success in the Republican primary as she is already running for that seat, but now she gets to try it out in the months leading up to November.

The nurse practitioner says she hopes to bring her healthcare experience to help the House in the wake of the pandemic. She says the state will need better pandemic preparedness plans for the future. 

“It was a very big honor to be selected,” Glasko-Tully said. “I think there were three names that were submitted to the governor and mine came up on the top, and I did have a very nice conversation with the governor, and I’m very, very pleased at the appointment, and I’m so much looking forward to the opportunity to represent the area of which I live and love.” 

Delegate Hill resigned after taking a job out of the district. The 41st District makes up Nicholas County and parts of Greenbrier.
