It is important that we continue to make a difference in people’s lives, whether they are adults or our youth. While I do not take credit for these success stories, I am humbled that I am an instrument which helps to effectuate positive life changes.
Before becoming your District Court Judge, I worked for almost 10 years as a lawyer. In addition to Pulaski and Rockcastle Counties, I practiced law in multiple counties across our Commonwealth as well as before the Federal Courts in the Eastern District and Western District of Kentucky. I also had the privilege of presenting oral arguments before the Kentucky Supreme Court on two occasions.
Summer of 2005, I was selected as one of three (3) judicial candidates by the Judicial Nominating Committee for this District. October 2005, I was appointed District Judge by the Governor of our Commonwealth.
I cannot express to you how honored I was when I was elected to continue to serve as your District Court Judge in November 2006! Not a single day has gone by over the past 16 years when I have failed to acknowledge this blessing.
It is important to me that our Court is fair. Our District Court addresses many cases, obviously involving many people. It is important that these matters are addressed with professionalism and respect, with each person having their day in court, and decided fairly.
Some of the matters which I address do not involve the courtroom, but are matters which are an inherent part of our judicial system such as search warrants and emergency proceedings. It is important to me that I continue to be available whenever and wherever needed, no matter the time or place.
The privilege of the experience I have gained as serving as District Judge for our community is invaluable. I consistently strive to serve you well, and help to ensure that your court is not only the court you deserve, but a court of which you can be proud. Experience continues to make me a good Judge for Pulaski and Rockcastle Counties.
I want to share so much information with you, and I invite you to continue reading through this website. I also invite you to contact me at any time with any questions you may have. After all, I am here for our Commonwealth, I am here for our community, but most importantly, I am here for you, as your District Court Judge.
The term for which I serve as your District Judge, DIVISION II, will expire this coming year, requiring that I be elected on November 8, 2022. You previously elected me as Judge Katie Wood, now I am Judge Katie Slone.
I love serving you each and every day, and so look forward to continuing to serve as your Judge. I thank the citizens of Pulaski and Rockcastle counties for being so supportive of me over the years. This has meant and continues to mean so much to me! I would like to take this opportunity, just as though I were sitting right there with you in person, to humbly ask for your vote in the General Election this Fall, 2022. I Genuinely Thank You.
Very truly yours, as always,
