Humphries Plans to Submit Official Resignation Soon
First District State Senator-elect Stan Humphries plans to submit his letter of resignation as Trigg County Judge Executive in the coming days. Gov. Steve Beshear will have 30 days to select a replacement for the remaining two years of Humphries’ term.
Humphries, a Republican, says it’s likely the Democratic Governor will choose someone from his own party. He says Beshear has not yet consulted with him on a successor.
Trigg County Democratic Executive Committee Chairman Thornton Bryan says the group sent three recommendations to the Governor. They are Cadiz police chief Hollis Alexander, Kentucky Transportation Department official Doug Taylor, and Trigg County magistrate Michael Wright. Governor’s office spokesperson Ann Gibson says she can’t comment on the matter until the resignation is official. Humphries takes the oath of office as a senator on Jan. 8.
