JOBE SAYS SKAGGS TOO YOUNG, NAME WON’T BE ON BALLOT
LOUISA — Lawrence County Clerk Chris Jobe announced yesterday that Coroner candidate Will Skaggs will not be allowed to have his name on the ballot because he is too young to hold the office.
“We just got the official word from the court that the ruling is in favor of Wes (Heston) who had filed the complaint, Jobe said.
Neither one will be on the ballot because there is now no competition for the position which requires a candidate to be 24 years of age by the time of the General Election and Heston proved Skaggs is not old enough.
