Newly elected Jason Denny took over as county clerk at 8:30 a.m., Friday, after being sworn in the day before by Judge-Executive Steve Cornish.
Denny defeated Anthony Stratton, a former county judge-executive and magistrate, on Nov. 4 in a race to determine who would serve the remaining two years of the term formerly held by long-time county clerk Harold Ritchey. Ritchey died unexpectedly last spring while jogging.
Denny was already serving as 4th District magistrate and had two years remaining on a four-year term. His replacement will be appointed by Gov. Steve Beshear and will serve the remaining two years.
