Wood County Delegate Azinger Retires

There will be at least one new face next year in the West Virginia house of delegates.

A Wood County member decided to retire.

Delegate Tom Azinger was first elected to the House in 1994.

He says he's enjoyed his years there, but it's time to step down.

Azinger mentioned the eventual repeal of the state tax on food as one of the legislature's biggest accomplishments during that time

"We got tort reform for medical malpractice," he says. "The doctors were leaving the state in droves, and I think we stabilized that. And we cut taxes on businesses."

Azinger hopes to see a bill he sponsored, making pseudoephedrine available by prescription only, passed in the current session.

Azinger's son Michael filed to run for one of the three seats in the tenth House district.
