Delegate Dave Pethtel, D-Wetzel, says he will not seek re-election in 2022 if new House map approved

As the House of Delegates on Wednesday debated amendments to a new delegate district map that would include 100 single-member districts, Delegate Dave Pethtel, D-Wetzel, said from the floor that if the map currently being considered is approved, he would not seek re-election in 2022.

The proposed map includes a portion of Wetzel County with a portion of Marshall County as part of the new 7th Delegate District. As it is currently presented, Pethtel would have to run against incumbent Delegate Lisa Zukoff, D-Marshall, for the nomination from that district.

Pethtel is a retired educator. He served two terms in the House from 1988 to 1992, then returned to Charleston in 1998. He has served as a delegate since that time.
