Carl "Robbie" Martin wins District 45 House of Delegates race

BUCKHANNON, W. Va (WDTV) - There's a new face in the House of Delegates District 45.

Carl "Robbie" Martin won with 68% of the votes against his opponent Matt Kerner with 32%.

Martin was at the courthouse, with the rest of the candidates in different races on Tuesday. Martin has a background by being part of the board of education. He's also a local businessman.

Martin says the first thing he wants to do before he heads to Charleston is to sit down with teachers.

"I'm going to get together with some teachers and ask them what laws hinder them from being able to teach. They see the issues that are there, everyday, and they're the ones in the trenches, and I look so forward to speak with them," he said.
