Board elections end; all 5 incumbents re-elected

The Kentucky Press Association recently held elections for Board seats in Districts 9, 10, 11, 12 and 14.

Four of the five districts had only one nominee — the current office holder — so those were re-elected to a full three-year term. Those four include Russ Cassady, Appalachian News Express, District 9; Jessica Butler, Beattyville Enterprise/Booneville Sentinel, District 10;  Mark Hoskins, Manchester Enterprise, District 11; and Keith Taylor, Berea Citizen, District 14.

In District 12, incumbent Charlie VanLeuven, of the Casey County News, and Wade Daffron, of the Russell Springs Times Journal, were nominated. VanLeuven won the election when the voting deadline was reached last Friday.

All five begin their three-year term at the 2022 January Convention and will serve through the January 2025 Winter Convention.
