HAZARD – Only one candidate has officially filed to run for office in 2014 in Perry County in the past three weeks.
Scott Blair, a Dilce Combs graduate and Perry County native, filed to run for Perry County Circuit Judge last week, marking his first run for public office. Blair currently works for LKLP at the Kentucky Jobsite in Hazard.
Blair said he is excited about his candidacy, which will pit him against Hazard attorneys Sam Collins and Allison Wells, and added he looks forward to serving all Perry Countians with honesty, integrity, and fairness.
Commonwealth's Attorney John Hansen has said he will also be a candidate in the circuit judge's race, though he has not filed as of press time this week.
Other notable races on the ballot in May include the race for county judge, in which Denny Ray Noble is seeking re-election. Republican Robert “Butch” Chaney is also making another run for the office following two unsuccessful candidacies in 2006 and 2010.
Sen. Brandon Smith, a Republican, and Rep. Fitz Steele, a Democrat, will both be seeking another term in the state Senate and House, respectively. As of press time, both are also running unopposed.
Several other races have still yet to attract a candidate, including coroner, surveyor, Vicco mayor, and Buckhorn mayor.
