RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Virginia Senator Henry Marsh has been officially appointed by Governor Terry McAuliffe to serve as commissioner of the state's Department of Alcohol Beverage Control board.

Gov. McAuliffe appointed the veteran senator to the board Thursday, the day that Sen. Marsh's (D-Richmond) resignation went into effect.

Marsh submitted his resignation Tuesday, after serving in the Virginia Senate for more than 12 years. Richmond elected Marsh as the city's first African American mayor in 1977.
