We’re in the mode of a Special Election in District 6 to fill the seat vacated when Joel Christopher left the Courier-Journal and took over the editorial helm at the Knoxville News Sentinel.
The deadline for nominations is noon today. One person has been nominated and if no additional nominations are received, the Special Election will be resolved with that person being named to complete the term.
If any other nominations come in before the deadline, we’ll complete the Special Election with a vote of each member newspaper in the district.
The district includes Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble counties.
