“Justin is a young man who has displayed a passion for public service,” Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said. “As an Assistant County Prosecutor as well as an elected member of the West Virginia Democratic State Executive Committee, 6th district, Justin has shown he values the ability and the rewards of working for the benefit of others. Such a trait will serve the people of the 20th Delegate District well.”
He serves on the following committees in the House of Delegates: Judiciary; Judiciary Subcommittee B; Roads and Transportation; and Political Subdivisions. He serves as Vice-Chair of the Rule-making Review Committee.
He has sponsored legislation relating to education (school drop-out rates); health care records; child neglect; drug treatment programs; grand juror misconduct; firearms; license plates (including one about the “Hatfield and McCoy” regional heritage); self-defense; and voting system certification.
He graduated from the Appalachian School of Law in 2011, thus making his elevation from law student to state legislator nothing but meteoric.
Marcum served as a Mingo County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney from August 2011 to the present. He also runs his own law office.
