Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners Hires Executive Director

The Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners Association have tapped Frankfort native, JC Young to become their Executive Director, upon the retirement of Richard Tanner who has served the organization for over 20 years.

Young, 32, holds a master's degree in Public Administration from Eastern Kentucky University and has most recently served all county elected officials as the Assistant Director of Member Services at the Kentucky Association of Counties.

"JC brings a wealth of contacts, diligence, and energy to the KMCA," says Hubert Pollett, Shelby County Magistrate and KMCA President. "He's been very successful at building relationships and serving the needs of local governments."

The statewide organization serves as the voice for all county elected magistrates and commissioners in Frankfort and promotes effective legislation that's in the best interest of the people of the commonwealth. The organization also provides training and education to elected officials, which allows magistrates and commissioners to more effectively and satisfactorily manage their local county governments.

"I'm truly humbled by this opportunity," says Young. "Richard Tanner has built this organization from the ground up and I can only aspire to provide the same level of leadership and vision that he has displayed throughout his career."

Congratulations to JC Young, the new Executive Director of your Association. If you have questions or would like to speak with JC about any pressing issues, don't hesitate to call.
