    CHARLESTON - Del. Gary Howell of Keyser has been elected minority chairman for the Government Organization Committee, one of the five main standing committees of the West Virginia House of Delegates.
    Howell, a Republican, was first elected to the House in November 2010 to represent District 49. With the recent realignment of both the House and Senate districts, however, he now represents District 56.
    Since being elected to the House, he has served on the Roads and Transportation Committee, Senior Citizens Issues Committee, and Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security Committee.
    Howell said he will be working with a membership of 11 Republicans and 13 Democrats on the Government Organization Committee, which "oversees the makeup of government itself."
    He said he will also continue to serve on the Roads and Transportation and Veterans Affairs/Homeland Security committees.
    Prior to the startup of the 2013 legislative session, Howell will be conducting two "town hall" type meetings in opposite ends of Mineral County to invite citizens to share their concerns with him.
    The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 6 p.m. in the Mineral County Courthouse and the second is slated for Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 5:30 p.m. in the terminal meeting room at the Greater Cumberland Regional Airport in Wiley Ford.
    Other delegates and senators who represent the area are also invited to attend.
