FRANKFORT, Ky. — Martin County has a new leader after two weeks with nobody with the reins.
Gov. Andy Beshear on Tuesday appointed Victor Slone, of Lovely, to be the county’s new judge-executive, following the abrupt resignation of former Judge-Executive William “BillBo” Davis last month.
Davis, a Republican serving his first term, gave no reason for leaving the job, but his assistant Steve Goble left abruptly for Texas the week before — leaving Davis with an uphill battle to keep up with all Martin County business and he said-no and left…
It it unusual for a Democrat to appoint a Republican to any position, so the confidence in Slone is clear.
Slone will serve until a new judge is elected during a special election in November 2022.
