CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Former Del. Robert "Bob" Tabb was promoted to Deputy Commissioner of Agriculture following the retirement of Deputy Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Hannah.

Tabb's promotion was effective June 1, according to West Virginia Commissioner of Agriculture Gus R. Douglass. His previous title was Assistant Commissioner.

"Bob is a great addition to the executive team, and I look forward to his future contributions to the Department of Agriculture," said Commissioner Douglass. "I also thank Steve for his years of exemplary service. I think I can safely say that both of these men are as good as they come in this profession."

Tabb joined the West Virginia Department of Agriculture (WVDA) in November 2009. A fourth generation farmer from Jefferson County, Tabb has been involved in agriculture all his life. He showed his first cow at age 7, and was active in 4-H and FFA as a student. He remains passionate about agricultural education - for future agriculture professionals and for young people in general.

"There's no better way to make a living than on a farm. It's a great way to raise a family and live a life," Tabb said.

Before joining WVDA, Tabb was elected four times to represent the 56th District in Jefferson County in the West Virginia House of Delegates, where he served as vice chairman of the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee.
