Beshear will appoint someone after current Trigg County Judge Executive Stan Humphries – who won in the race for District One State Senator against Carroll Hubbard in the General Election – after Humphries submits his resignation. He will be sworn in as State Senator on Jan. 8.
Littlejohn is the current District Two Magistrate for the Trigg County Fiscal Court, a position he has held for six years. He chairs the county’s building and grounds committee and sits on its budget committee and the emergency services committee.
