Delegate Doug Skaff, Jr. stepping down as Minority Leader of House of Delegates

Charleston, WV – House of Delegates Minority Leader Doug Skaff Jr. of Kanawha County will step down as Minority Leader of the House of Delegates at the conclusion of Legislative interim meetings on Tuesday August 8th, 2023. Delegate Skaff expressed his gratefulness to colleagues for the opportunity to serve in this capacity, but he feels it is time to turn the leadership over to someone else.

“I have enjoyed working with Republican Speaker of the House Roger Hanshaw to deliver common sense solutions for the people of West Virginia,” Skaff stated. “In my role as Minority Leader, I worked with Speaker Hanshaw to focus on attracting businesses to our state and creating jobs here as we traveled the country to encourage companies and major corporations to Choose WV.”

In stepping down as Minority Leader, Delegate Skaff plans to spend extra time focused on his businesses and coaching his three boys on the soccer fields.

House of Delegates Minority Leader Pro Temp Sean Hornbuckle of Cabell County will assume the role of Minority Leader immediately following the August interim meetings of the Legislature.

On Delegate Hornbuckle, Leader Skaff said, “Sean is a strong leader, delegate and friend- I know that he will lead the caucus well.”
