House committee chair resigns; Governor sets replacement vote for election day Nov. 5

Tim Moore

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 accordance with KRS 118.730 and 118.740, the executive order was filed with the Kentucky Secretary of State’s office and also forwarded to the sheriffs of Grayson and Hardin Counties

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.”
