City awaits Judge Vance's decisions on Mayoral Election
The case is now in Judge Judy Vance's hands whether there will be a new mayoral election, whether to grant motion by Ben Arnold's attorney's not to install Curtis Hardwich as Mayor on January 1, 2014, or to grant the request by attorneys for Hardwick, the City of Columbia, and County Clerk Joyce Rodgers to dismiss the petition by Ben Arnold
By Ed Waggener
Whether there will be a new Columbia Mayoral Election or not, whether Curtis Hardwick, the high vote recipient in the November 4, 2014 election will be seated on January 1, 2014, or whether the petition filed by Ben Arnold, write in candidate who is requesting a new election will be dismissed, is all in the hands of 29th Circuit Judge Judy Vance.
Motions were heard in circuit Monday morning on the petition, Curtis Hardwick present with his attorney H.K Cooper of Columbia, KY; County Clerk Joyce Rodgers and County Attorney Jennifer Hutchison Corbin, present, representing the county; City Attorney Marshall Loy present, representing the City of Columbia, and Ben Arnold and his attorney, Elmer George of Columbia present also present. Attorneys Hutchison and Loy requested that Arnold's petition be dismissed, which would allow the elections to stand and remove any impediment to Curtis Hardwick taking office on January 1, 2015.
Arnold's Attorney Elmer George is requesting 1) The the November 4 election be set aside, 2) That a new election be held, and 3) That Hardwick not be installed as Mayor on January 1, 2015.
Judge Vance took all the motions under advisement and has made no ruling as of this post.
A CD of the hearing is available at the Office of Adair Circuit Court Clerk Dennis Loy, Adair County Judicial Center, 201 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY. CD's are made after order is place. The phone number is 270-384-2626
