Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has made an appointment to fill an open seat for a county judge-executive.
Democrat Michael Todd Mansfield will take the job as Todd County's top official.
Mansfield is a former bank president who works for an appraisal company in Hopkinsville. He is also a Hopkinsville Community College Foundation board member.
He was appointed to serve out the term of former Todd County Judge-Executive Daryl Greenfield, who resigned earlier this year.
Mansfield won the Democrat primary race in May, and he has no general election opponent in the fall.
