FRANKFORT, Ky. – Governor Ernie Fletcher has appointed David G. Perdue, of Winchester, as district judge for the 25th Judicial District, Division 3, which consists of Clark and Madison counties.

Perdue is a practicing attorney and a trial commissioner for Clark County.  He received a bachelor’s degree in police administration from Eastern Kentucky University and a juris doctor degree from the University of Kentucky.  Perdue has served as president, vice-president and secretary/treasurer of the Clark County Bar Association, and as a trustee for the Clark County Law Library.  He serves on the Clark County YMCA Board of Directors and is married to Patricia F. Perdue.

“I appreciate Governor Fletcher providing me with this opportunity and I’m grateful to the voters for showing their confidence in me this past Tuesday,” said Perdue.  “I look forward to serving the folks in Clark and Madison counties as their district judge.”

The judgeship was created by the 2006 General Assembly in an effort to reduce caseload backlog.  Perdue will serve until the seat is filled by general election in November.
