Gov. Justice names Sen. Mike Hall as new Chief of Staff


CHARLESTON, WV - Today, Governor Jim Justice announced that Sen. William Michael “Mike” Hall from Putnam County will become his new Chief of Staff, effective Monday, Aug. 21, 2017.

“Mike Hall has a reputation for being able to work with everybody,” said Gov. Justice. “He has an analytical mind and knows the ins and outs of the budget and budget process. That, and the fact that there is not a more respected man in the Legislature than Mike Hall really helped me make my decision.”

Hall, of Winfield, has represented the State’s 4th Senatorial District since 2006. Prior to that he was elected to six terms in the House of Delegates. He most recently served as the chair of the Senate Finance Committee and as vice chair of the Education, Banking and Insurance, Pensions, and Rules committees.

“I am honored that Governor Justice has placed his trust in me, and I am eager to begin serving the people of West Virginia in this new role," Hall said. "While it was an incredibly difficult decision for me to leave the Senate, I could not imagine a greater opportunity to use all I have learned during my time in the Legislature than this. I am confident the Governor is putting together the pieces he needs for a strong team that will continue to advance his vision and hopes for West Virginia.”
