A ‘new' Kenton County on the horizon

Kris Knochelmann to take Kenton County throne

Commissioner Kris Knochelmann will have his hands full come Jan. 1, 2015 when he takes his seat in the plush, leather chair at the Kenton County Fiscal Court.

"I wake up excited, energized, thinking about things we can do for Kenton County," said the newly-elected judge executive, who took the race by 1,035 votes.

From heroin to newsworthy airport board behavior, Knochelmann will have a full plate and an eager public awaiting solutions. Knochelmann beat out incumbent Steve Arlinghaus during the primary.
