Lincoln magistrate sworn into state role

The Kentucky Magistrates & Commissioners Association, headquartered in Frankfort, held its annual election of officers and directors last week at the association’s annual meeting.

Lincoln County Magistrate Lonnie Pruitt was elected as 2nd Vice President of the Kentucky Magistrates & Commissioners Association on Thursday, March 25, 2021, and sworn in by State Agriculture Commissioner Dr. Ryan Quarles.

“I’m honored to serve my district in Lincoln County as a magistrate and I am equally honored to be elected by my peers and serve all Kentucky counties” Pruitt said.

Formed in 1952, the Kentucky Magistrates & Commissioners Association is a statewide non-profit organization that is the voice for all Kentucky fiscal courts in Frankfort. The association represents all 564 county-elected magistrates and county-elected commissioners. KMCA also provides training, education, and serves as a local government resource to county elected officials.

“This association is blessed with humble public servants. Magistrate Pruitt is an enthusiastic leader and I am proud he is willing to serve at the state level for this historic association,” said J.C. Young, KMCA executive director.
