Edmonson County, I thank you for voting on Tuesday. I will take the office of Judge Executive after the new year. Until that time, I will be doing all I can to prepare for the new position and transitioning from the Sheriff’s Office.
Up front, my goal will be to get acclimated with the job and fiscal court. While we are getting use to each other and learning our new jobs we will continue to keep up the services that we now provide. I expect it will take a little while for those of us who are new to get our feet on the ground and then we will begin to venture out some. I use the "crawl, walk, run" principle, and so far it’s always worked out. I also expect the folks who remain in office to welcome us and help us get going. Judge Reed has offered his advise and I will use it often.
I have said this before and will say it again. We are getting ready to have the most cooperative local government we have ever had and even though we will face obstacles we will work together to solve the problem. I am excited and looking forward to serving Edmonson County as Judge Executive.
Thank you all for your support. It's an honor to still have the opportunity to serve the people of Edmonson County.
