Alexander says it will be up to Cadiz Mayor Lyn Bailey and the Cadiz City Council to find a replacement for him as the Cadiz Police Chief. He will serve the remainder of Humphries’ unexpired term, which ends in 2014.
“I’m deeply humbled at the Governor’s confidence in me,” said Alexander. “I look forward to continuing to serve Trigg County.”
Alexander says that while Humphries “leaves some big shoes to fill,” he looks forward to working with Humphries and other elected officials representing the area “to move Trigg County forward” by making sure the U.S. 68/Ky. 80 replacement bridges get built, by taking advantage of grants, and other actions.
