Slone appointed Martin County judge-exec

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Martin County has a new leader.

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 gave no reason for his departure.

Slone will serve until a new judge is elected during a special election in November 2022.
