Ballot replacement named for Carol Fouty

Former Kanawha County magistrate Carol Fouty was officially removed from the ballot last week, and now Kanawha County republicans have picked her replacement. John Jarman was on the Kanawha County primary ballot as a candidate for assessor, and now he'll be listed candidate for magistrate. Jarman ran for assessor in May, and lost the Republican primary to Forest Carper. Jarman also owns Town and Country Publications in Clendenin. Fouty resigned as part of a settlement with the state Judicial Investigation Commission.
