INWOOD, W.Va. - Residents of the 53rd District will continue to be represented by a Republican in the state Legislature, with Vic Roberts defeating his Democratic challenger, Jerry Burton.

According to complete but unofficial results, Roberts received 3,730 votes and Burton received 3,213 votes.

Roberts, 66, of Inwood, retired in 1996 as president of Blue Ridge Bank and formerly served as the executive director of the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Chamber of Commerce.

He said he wants to ensure state resources are directed to growth counties for growth-related problems and favors locality pay for state employees, including teachers.

The 53 District seat was held by long-term Republican Del. Larry Faircloth, who quit to run an unsuccessful campaign for governor.
