The Inauguration is Tuesday, December 10, a date constitutionally required. “According to the Kentucky state constitution, the swearing in of a Kentucky governor must be held on the fifth Tuesday following the election,” putting this year’s Inauguration on December 10.
Particulars are being worked out by the staff and the process will be sent in email form to all editors on Tuesday, November 26. Newspapers will have a deadline of Thursday, December 5 to register for the photos and story.
