I recently retired as Executive Director of the Kentucky County Attorneys’ Association, a position I was privileged to hold for more than a decade. From this position, I have first-hand experience with their unique and enormous responsibilities.

I feel compelled to write this letter to voice my thoughts on Claud Porter. The residents of Daviess County are fortunate to have a man of Claud’s stature serving as County Attorney. Claud has demonstrated his concern for public safety and has served as an example of what it means to be a firm, fair and even-handed prosecutor.

Over the years, Claud has been active in the Kentucky County Attorneys Association, where he has served in several leadership positions. From these posts, Claud championed funding programs that serve working families and advocated for initiatives that makes our communities a safer place to live and work. He has demonstrated an amazing willingness to provide time, wisdom and leadership on criminal justice, legislative and policy issues. This has earned Claud the well-deserved respect of his colleagues across Kentucky.

When it comes to serving his community and state, Claud is one of the most unselfish and dedicated public officials I know. As I leave public service, I sincerely say it has been a high point in my career to work with Claud Porter. I know he will continue to serve admirably and provide strong leadership for the people of Daviess County and the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky.
