FRANKFORT, Ky. – Republican Representative Tim Moore resigned Tuesday from his District 18 seat and Governor Matt Bevin set a date for the special election to fill his seat.
The special election will take place Tuesday, November 5, election day.
Moore represented Grayson County and a portion of Hardin County for more than 12 years. In his resignation letter to Bevin, Moore said, “I have long believed in term limits as a worthy ideal of government service. Now, having served over 12 years in the Kentucky Legislature, it is time to apply that principle to myself.”
There will also be a special election on the same day to fill the 63rd District seat left vacant by the resignation of Republican Representative Diane St. Onge last month.
Moore also represented the 26th District for a time.
