Poore to Succeed Webster in 31st House

Gov. Joe Manchin has announced he's appointed Charleston lawyer Meshea L. Poore to the 31st House of Delegates seat vacated by now-former House Judiciary Chair Carrie Webster, D-Kanawha.

Poore had lost to Webster, picked by the governor for the Kanawha Circuit Court bench, in their party's 2008 primary.

Poore "is a member of the West Virginia State Bar and the Alabama State Bar Association, and serves on the board of West Virginia Legal Aid," Manchin's statement said. "Poore received a bachelor’s degree in political science from Howard University in Washington and a law degree from Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge, La."
