Anitra Hamilton Takes Oath of Office, replaces Danielle Walker as Monongalia County Delegate

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Anitra Hamilton took the oath of office to become the newest member of the West Virginia House of Delegates on May 5.

Hamilton was appointed to represent the 81st District, which covers part of Morgantown. She will complete the unexpired term of former Delegate Danielle Walker, D-Monongalia.

“I’m thankful for what God has allowed me to do,” Hamilton said immediately after House Clerk Steve Harrison administered the oath. “I want to make a difference while I’m here, I want to learn and grow and make a change in the state of West Virginia.”

Del. Mike Pushkin, D-Kanawha; Del. Anitra Hamilton, D-Monongalia; House Minority Leader Doug Skaff, D-Kanawha.

Hamilton stood at the front of the House Chamber with her mother Francis Anthony and Barbara Littles, as well as Leo and Regina Riley joined her nearby, surrounded by several friends and supporters while she took the oath.

Her committee assignments and contact information will be listed on the West Virginia Legislature’s website at a later date.
