CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Gov. Jim Justice has named Republican Dianna Graves to fill a vacant seat in the House of Delegates.

Graves’ appointment in District 38 spanning parts of Kanawha and Putnam counties was announced Tuesday. She replaces Nancy Reagan Foster, a Republican who resigned earlier this month to tend to her family and her business.

Graves is from Cross Lanes and works as an auditor at a Charleston accounting firm.
