HAZARD—A Perry County magistrate has been elected as a representative of the Kentucky River Area Development District for an organization dedicated to helping and representing county governments’ needs.
Frank Hurley, magistrate of District 1, was elected to serve on the Kentucky Association of Counties (KACo) board of directors in November. Hurley will represent local governments who are members of the association in Perry, Knott, Letcher, Breathitt, Leslie, Owsley, Wolfe, and Lee counties.
According to a press release from Hurley, “KACo represents the needs of county government in legislative matters and offers a variety of services to promote the progress of county government.”
“KACo has done a tremendous job of representing the interests of counties, whether it is research and planning, insurance, safety measures, and legislative issues,” Hurley said. “I am honored to be a part of the organization and to represent the Kentucky River Area Development District counties.”
Hurley, a resident of Chavies, has served as magistrate for five years, and recently retired from American Electric Power after nearly 34 years of service.
