Morgantown’s Debbie Warner announces candidacy for House 82nd District

MORGANTOWN — Cheat Lake resident Debbie Warner has announced her candidacy for the House of Delegates District 82 seat. The Republican delivered her pre-candidacy announcement to the secretary of state’s regional office in Clarksburg on Tuesday.

The 2022 election will be the first with 100 single-member House districts.

Warner is a Monongalia County realtor and the wife of Secretary of State Mac Warner. She previously ran to represent the House 51st District in 2018.

Warner was born and raised in Charleston. She married Mac Warner in 1982 and followed his assignments to military posts throughout the world. When their children started growing up, the couple decided to make their home in Morgantown where they have lived and where Debbie as been active in church and community organizations for more than 20 years.

The Warners are the parents of four adult children — two sons and two daughters — all of whom are or have been officers in the U.S. military. They also are the grandparents of six grandchildren.

As a small business owner and mother, Warner said she wants to serve in the House of Delegates to help keep the Legislature focused on issues important to West Virginia families: education, health care, drug addiction, reliable high-speed broadband, and economic development.
