Newly Appointed Senator Sam Cann Sworn In
Newly appointed State Senator Sam Cann (D-Harrison) was sworn in this morning in the Senate Chamber. Senator Cann is filling the vacancy created after Joseph Minard resigned upon his election as Senate Clerk.

Governor Earl Ray Tomblin appointed Cann to the position in mid-January to serve out the remainder of the four-year term. Cann had been serving in the House of Delegates since he was first elected in 1994.

As a Senator, Cann will be serving as Vice-Chairman of the Senate Committee on Economic Development and will also serve as a member on the Senate Committees on Pensions, Government Organizations, Agriculture, and Judiciary.

Members of Cann’s family, including his wife Phyllis, daughter Laura and three brothers, Carmine Jr., Jim, and Larry, were on hand for the ceremony while Senate Clerk Joseph Minard issued the oath.
