WHITE HALL — West Virginia House of Delegates member Del. Guy Ward, R-50, is running for re-election.

Ward announced Monday he will run for the newly-established District 74 as West Virginia will now be a state of single-member districts in the West Virginia House.

The 2022 Legislative Session will mark the last session in which the current District 50, which comprises all of Marion County, will be represented by three different house delegates. Along with Ward, his fellow District 50 delegates are Del. Joey Garcia, D-50, and Del. Phil Mallow, D-50.

The 74th district was created through the West Virginia Legislature’s redistricting process, which created 100 single-member districts out of the 67 current districts, which many were multi-Delegate districts.
