Whitesburg KY

Four more candidates file

With the filing deadline for candidates still uncertain, only a handful of new candidates have filed to run for election in Letcher County.

The Kentucky General Assembly is considering pushing back the deadline, but it currently stands as advertised – Friday, January 7. As of Tuesday, the Republican controlled legislature had still not finalized district maps for state officials.

Candidates who filed in the past week here are:

Constable District 5 – Eugene Williams

Constable District 2 – Gary Cook

Magistrate District 2 – Alben Watts

Magistrate District 4 – Christopher Dollarhide

State offices up for election have disappeared from the web page of the Kentucky Secretary of State and were not available, and a telephone message left at the Secretary of State’s office was not returned.
