Former House Delegate John Mandt Jr. defeated long time county official "Coach" Bob Bailey for the interim County Commissioner position today in the Tuesday November 8th 2022.

In a local Republican wave, Liza Caldwell also took the six year Cabell County Commission position from former House Delegate and City Council member James Hanley Morgan. Caldwell bested Morgan 54-46 (11,556 to 9,926) while Mandt defeated Bailey in a close 50-49 race (10,880 to 10,640) to place Republicans in the historic position of holding all three Cabell County Commission seats.
