Election 2018: Mayor, school board candidate file for November ballot



Wednesday, July 11, 2018 — Bardstown City Schools Board of Education member Jim Roby filed to run for re-election today at the Nelson County Clerk’s office. Roby, 71, is a resident of South Fifth Street.

The General Election is Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018.

There are five seats on the city schools board of education, though not all of them are up for election on any given year. School board races are non-partisan.

MAYOR FILES. As promised in his announcement last Friday, Bardstown Mayor Dick Heaton filed as a candidate for mayor of Bardstown.


Heaton, 64, served one four-year term as the city’s mayor from 2006-2010. He was elected to serve on the Bardstown City Council in 2016, and in March 2017, the council voted Heaton to serve as mayor after it removed former Mayor John Royalty.

“A major reason for my decision was based on the fact that the city staff, city council and I have identified and put in to motion the process to complete a number of large capital projects for Bardstown and Nelson County. I want to serve another term to oversee these projects from start through completion,” Heaton wrote in his announcement last Friday.

City mayor and council/commission races are non-partisan.

DEADLINE APPROACHES. The deadline to file for local office — mayor and council member or city commissioner — is 4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2018.
