FRANKFORT, Ky. — House Veterans, Military Affairs and Public Protection Committee Chairman Tim Moore resigned his seat midterm this morning, citing his own belief in term limits. As Moore suggested in a resignation letter released this morning, Gov. Matt Bevin set the special election to fill the sudden vacancy, which Moore declared was effective at noon, for Nov. 5, which already is a statewide general election day.
State Rep. Moore, a Republican, represented Grayson County and part of Hardin County in the General Assembly, occupying the Kentucky House of Representatives 18th District. His resignation letter indicates he is currently in “transition into a Christian ministry role.”
In his letter, Moore states, “I have long believed in term limits as a worthy ideal of government service. Now, having served over 12 years in the Kentucky Legislature, it is time to apply that principle to myself.”
