When asked about his decision, Judge Hester said, “I’m 89 years old, I’ve served for 18 years as Justice of the Peace, and I figure it’s time I give someone else an opportunity to serve our County.”

His decision comes without hesitation and without any reason other than that. He said he plans to “sit at home in my recliner or ride the John Deere.”

Judge Hester is a native of Lexington and lives on his ranch with his wife, Melanie.
