Canestraro for House of Delegates


Joe Canestraro represents the 4th Delegate District in the West Virginia House of Delegates which is made up Marshall County and a small part of Ohio County.

As your Delegate, Joe has supported legislation aimed at moving our beautiful State forward, all while reaching across the aisle in order to do what’s best for his constituents and avoiding the gridlock of partisan politics.

Joe was born and raised in Wheeling, where he still lives and works as the Assistant Prosecuting Attorney. He enjoys spending time with family and friends and credits his Mountain State roots for his calling to public service. Joe, elected to the House of Delegates in 2016, spent his first term as a delegate fighting for working families, small businesses, law enforcement, correctional workers, educators, and equality,

Despite the many challenges facing West Virginia; the economic outlook, an education system that is trailing behind surrounding states and the nation, continued cuts to higher education and the opioid epidemic plaguing our State, Joe trusts and has faith that our best days are ahead of us.

Joe truly believes it’s a privilege to represent and fight for the people of Marshall County and wants to continue that fight at the West Virginia State Capitol in 2018.
