Senator Cookman Takes Oath of Office
Senator Donald H. Cookman was sworn in this afternoon to the State Senate, filling in the vacancy left behind by former Senator Walt Helmick. The Senator’s brother-in-law, the Honorable Tom Keadle, presided over the swearing-in ceremony and delivered the oath.

The Senator’s wife Paula Cookman, son Donnie Cookman, and grandson Sam Cookman were present for the ceremony, along with many friends and officials of the state.

“I am overwhelmed and humbled to start this new chapter of my life,” said Senator Cookman. “I am delighted to be here and be a part of the legislative process.”

Governor Earl Ray Tomblin appointed the Senator to the position on January 23, 2013 after Helmick left the Senate to fill the position of Agriculture Commissioner.
