Early filing allows Young to accept campaign donations


Sheriff Troy Young announced Monday that he will seek another term in office during the 2010 elections.

Young said he filed a letter of intent to seek re-election with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance, freeing him up to take campaign donations.

“Over the past few weeks I have been humbled at the overwhelming number of Anderson County citizens asking me if I’m going to run to continue serving the county in the next election, when the next election is and how they can help,” Young said.

“For people who want to donate, we can now go on and accept it.”

Young said he will still have to officially file for re-election Nov. 4 to run in the May 2010 primary.

“This notification of my intent will serve as notice to all that my office intends to continue serving the citizens of Anderson County to the best of our abilities, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
