ST. MARY’S WV (LOOTPRESS) – Delegate Trenton Barnhart (R-Pleasants) has announced his plan to seek a second full term to the West Virginia House of Delegates in the 2022 elections.
Delegate Barnhart provided comments exclusively to Lootpress saying, “It’s been the honor of my life to represent the People of Ritchie and Pleasants Counties in the House of Delegates,” Delegate Barnhart said. “As I travel the hills and hollers of this district, I look forward to talking with voters about all the ways that we are working to make West Virginia a better place to live, work and raise a family.”
Barnhart prides himself on his conservative voting record and work he feels he has accomplished with respect to infrastructure and government transparency.
“Protecting Life, our Second Amendment Rights, which are under attack, and standing on conservative principles is the reason the voters of the 7th District saw fit to send me to represent them in the West Virginia House,” Barnhart said. “I have advocated for major infrastructure investments and transparency within all corners of our government. We have cut regulations, made our state more business friendly, and are working every day to make it easier for people to choose West Virginia as their home.”
Barnhart was appointed by Governor Jim Justice to the represent the 7th District in the West Virginia House of Delegates in 2019 after the seat was vacated by then Delegate Jason Harshbarger who resigned for an employment opportunity. He ran for a full term in the general election in November 2020, beating a primary opponent earlier in the summer.
