Jarred Cannon (R – Putnam, 22), 24 of Hurricane, WV was sworn in by House Clerk Steve Harrison this morning. Cannon was appointed by Governor Jim Justice to replace Joe Jeffries, who resigned earlier this month to take a job out of state.
Cannon, a 2016 graduate of Cabell Midland High School and 2020 graduate of West Virginia University, will represent the 22nd District in the Legislature. His district encompasses parts of Putnam, Boone, Lincoln and Logan counties.
Cannon owns the West Virginia-based public relations firm Athena Consulting. He also serves on the board of the Ohio-West Virginia Youth Leadership Association and as an organizer for Camp Lincoln, a conservative youth program.
“I’d like to thank Governor Justice for his confidence in appointing me to represent the 22nd District in the House of Delegates,” Cannon said. “It’s an incredible honor and I am ready to get to work with the Governor and legislative leadership on day one to help make West Virginia the best place in the country to live, work, and raise a family.”
