How do you write the term?
County Judge Executive
Until recently, I don’t know I had ever seen or used a hyphen or slash in the phrase County Judge Executive. Er, Judge-Executive. No make that Judge/Executive.
It was mentioned to me a discussion was going on over the proper wording. I stood firm with no punctuation because (a) I’d never written it with punctuation and (b) never seen it with punctuation.
So I took a few minutes to look up the term, thinking I could prove my point.
I went to the website for the KCJEAssociation to see how it is used in that organization’s name.
A hyphen? No.
No punctuation? I was wrong
A slash? Yep.
It’s officially, at least on all references I can find for that association, the Kentucky County Judge/Executive Association.
If you Google the term, you’re apt to find all three as references.
Maybe to settle the discussion, you could go to state law. I mean the legislature would never make a mistake in writing a law would it?
If you believe that, then check out KRS 67.710 on Powers:
