Two Sworn into West Virginia House of Delegates

Two delegates were sworn in Monday morning in the West Virginia House of Delegates Chamber.

Randy Swartzmiller, of Chester, was officially sworn in at 10 a.m. Swartzmiller is a democratic member representing District 1, which covers Hancock County and part of Brooke County.

Swartzmiller first was elected in 2000 and served until 2014. During his tenure, he served as assistant majority whip from 2005-2013 and as speaker pro tempore. He also chaired the Homeland Security Committee, which was created shortly after September 11.

Swartzmiller worked for the Department of Agriculture from 2015-2017.

Swartzmiller earned his bachelor’s degree from West Liberty State College and his master’s from Mountain State University.

“I’m certainly honored to be back. I look forward to working with everyone to move West Virginia forward,” Swartzmiller said.

Larry Kump, of Falling Waters, also was sworn in Monday morning. Kump is a republican member representing District 59, which covers part of Berkeley and Morgan counties.

His swearing-in was ceremonial because the West Virginia Secretary of State had not yet certified all votes from that district.

Kump first was elected in 2010 and served until 2014 in the West Virginia House of Delegates.

“There are still things that need to be done,” Kump said. “It’s both a sacrifice and a privilege to serve. I’m pleased and proud to do it.”

Kump earned his bachelor’s degree from Frostburg State University and an associate’s degree from Hagerstown Community College.

He also has served as the executive director of the Indiana State Employees Association and as the regional president of the Assembly of Governmental Employees.
