Mike Honaker resigns as director of Greenbrier County Homeland Security and Emergency Management

By RealWV Staff,

LEWISBURG, W.Va. – Mike Honaker, last week, resigned his position as Greenbrier County’s director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Honaker’s staff was notified of his decision to leave on Wednesday, and his last day spent in the role was Friday. 

Along with Todd Longanacre, Honaker also serves in the State Legislature as one of Greenbrier County’s two Republican delegates. Honaker was initially appointed to the seat vacated by the resignation of former Delegate Barry Bruce ahead of the 2022 Regular Legislative Session, before his subsequent election later that year. Honaker assumed the role of Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management in 2018. 

Honaker’s departure, though sudden, was not entirely unexpected. While on record, Honaker had previously alluded to plans of resigning his position with Greenbrier County later this year. No official information has been released regarding possible replacements, and Honaker has yet to disclose his intentions moving forward. 

RealWV will provide updates regarding both Honaker’s future plans, and Greenbrier County’s search for his replacement, as additional information is made available.
