Magistrate Welch Running for Re-Election in Hopkins County First District

karol welchKarol Welch has announced her candidacy for re-election to the position of First District Magistrate in Hopkins County. Her announcement follows:

Welch has always worked aggressively as a magistrate.
 
In past terms, when previous judge-executives and attorneys told Welch, “That is not in your job description”, she continued to tackle the hard issues ― water for all homes in Hopkins County, fought for the landfill placement over mined property with no underground water (to preserve the county's pristine water), for regulations to ensure that hog and chicken factories were placed at a fair distance from neighbors' houses and to help bring jobs to the area.
 
Last March, Welch and a friend went to Washington, D.C. to hand deliver more than 1,000 letters to Rep. Ed Whitfield and the other representatives and senators on behalf of ALL concerning: coal miners losing health insurance and jobs, blasting damage to local homes, keeping the Second Amendment, hiring ex-military soldiers to protect school children, keeping God and the U.S. flag in all present forms.  

Welch believes as an elected official her actions ARE part of her responsibility.

“I have the wisdom to know what needs to be addressed, and the courage to defend the public interest,” said Welch.
 
Welch, 65, is a graduate of Earlington High School, attended Madisonville Community College and is a 2009 graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Engineering. She has also attended the Kentucky Transportation Center’s Road Master and Road Scholar Training Programs and the Kentucky Association of Counties certified county official at the Masters Level.  

Welch’s efforts changed Public Law 101-508 of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliations Act of 1990 which brought a grant for water for Hopkins County’s homes and homes across America.  Welch was the first president of Crime Stoppers of Hopkins County and served on Hopkins County Democratic Executive Committee for several years.  A list of other committees can be provided upon request.
