Jefferson Delegate Appointed House Education Committee Chair

Paul Espinosa

West Virginia House Speaker Tim Armstead has named Delegate Paul Espinosa chairman of the House Education Committee.

Espinosa, a Republican from Jefferson County, says the appointment prompted him to scrap his plan to run for state Senate. Instead, he will run for re-election to the House.

Espinosa will succeed Delegate Amanda Pasdon as head of the Education Committee. Pasdon announced last month that she is resigning from the House.
