Barren County's sixth district magistrate becomes the sixth candidate to announce a run for judge-executive.
Dr. Chris Steward, D.M.D.
Democrat Chris Steward says he is running because of what he calls an erosion of Barren County's industrial base and job situation.
Steward lists being a dentist, nurse practitioner, classroom instructor, farmer, and small businessman in his experience. And he says, "Leadership has been sorely lacking, and like me or not, I will lead."
Current Barren County Judge-Executive Davie Greer says she will not seek re-election.
