Lee County Democrats Select JP Candidate P3
In an open meeting held Monday, July 16, the Lee County Democratic Party named a candidate to replace retiring Nick Hester as Lee County Justice of the Peace for Precinct 3. Candace Cox Walch was selected as the party’s candidate for the office. Candace has served seven years with Judge Hester as the City of Lexington’s Municipal Court Clerk and a year as the Justice of the Peace Court Clerk.
Earlier this month, the executive board members of the Republican Party named Richard “Rick” Reat as their candidate for the same position.
Both people’s names will be on the General Election ballot in November of this year.
