Watts announces candidacy for re-election
C.L. Watts has announced his candidacy for re-election as magistrate of the second district. Watts is a lifelong resident of Woodford County. He is retired from the Kentucky Department of Corrections, where he served as the state director of probation and parole. He graduated from Woodford County High School, Murray State University and received an honorable discharge from the United States Army. He serves on the executive board of Versailles Post 67 of the American Legion, is a member/deacon of Millville Christian Church and a member/past president of the Versailles Kiwanis Club. He and his wife Denise have two children, Katie Parrish and Lee Watts, who are graduates of Woodford County High School. He is grandfather to Landen, Lilly and Lucy. Watts has enjoyed his first term as magistrate and feels Woodford County has made great strides during that time. His first term began with a budget shortfall, but this year Woodford County has seen a large surplus. This was achieved without raising taxes and continuing to maintain services for citizens. He feels he has achieved many of his first term goals and asks for your vote to continue to improve the quality of life in Woodford County.
