Incumbents win Laurel County jailer, judge/exec races

CORBIN — By LeeAnn Cain / Staff Writer

The incumbent judge/executive and jailer won the Republican primary election in Laurel County.

According to unofficial election results, incumbent Judge/Executive David Westerfield, 56, took about 66 percent of the vote during Tuesday’s primary, defeating challenger Jerry Hollon, 43, who received 34 percent of the votes with final totals of 6,912 votes to 3,598 votes.

Jailer Jamie Mosley, 44, won his race with approximately 66 percent of the vote, or 6,958 votes. Mosley’s opponent, Darryl Wayne Bolton, 50, had 34 percent of the vote, or 3,586 votes.

Westerfield is a Laurel County native, and has been the county judge-executive for the past 3 1/2 years. He is a graduate of Laurel County High School and a former UPS driver. He held office in the London City Council for two terms, and spent two terms as Laurel County’s District 3 Magistrate before he was elected to his first term as judge-executive in 2010.

Westerfield faces off against Democrat and former judge-executive Lawrence Kuhl in November.

Mosley hails from London and is a graduate of M.C. Napier High School. Mosley attended Eastern Kentucky University and is a Kentucky Law Enforcement Council State Certified Law Enforcement Instructor.

Mosley was first elected jailer in 2010.
