Delegate Derrick Evans Announces Resignation from House of Delegates

PRICHARD, W.Va. – Delegate Derrick Evans, R-Wayne, today announced his resignation from the West Virginia House of Delegates, effective immediately. 

 

“The past few days have certainly been a difficult time for my family, colleagues and myself, so I feel it’s best at this pointto resign my seat in the House and focus on my personal situation and those I love,” Delegate Evans said. 

 

“I take full responsibility for my actions, and deeply regret any hurt, pain or embarrassment I may have caused my family, friends, constituents and fellow West Virginians. I hope this action I take today can remove any cloud of distraction from the state Legislature, so my colleagues can get to work in earnest building a brighter future for our state. And more importantly, I hope it helps to begin the healing process, so we can all move forward andcome together as ‘One Nation, Under God.’”
