FRANKFORT, Ky. – Governor Ernie Fletcher has issued a writ of election for the 63rd House District Seat, vacated by Rep. John Draud upon his acceptance of the position of Kentucky Commissioner of Education. A special election to fill Draud seat will be held January 8, 2008.

“Calling this special session on the earliest possible day will assure the citizens of the 63rd District that they will have the representation they deserve during the upcoming session of the Kentucky General Assembly,” said Governor Fletcher.

In accordance with KRS 118.730, a writ of election shall be issued by the Governor when a vacancy occurs in the House when the General Assembly is not in session.
