Somerset judge announces he’ll run for Kentucky Supreme Court
August 3, 2017
A Somerset judge announced Thursday his intention to run for a seat on the Kentucky Supreme Court.
David Tapp, circuit court judge for Pulaski, Rockcastle and Lincoln counties, is running to represent the Third District, which spans 27 counties in south-central Kentucky. That seat is held by Justice Daniel Venters, who is not seeking re-election.
“I’ve been blessed to serve Kentucky as a judge, and I have more still to contribute,” Tapp said. “I believe in the limited but crucial role that the courts play in our system of government.”
