Doolittle Chosen for Deputy Judge-Executive Post
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - McCracken County's Judge-Executive has chosen a man familiar with local government to be his second-in-command.

Judge-Executive Craig Clymer told West Kentucky Star on Thursday that he wants Steve Doolittle for the job of Deputy County Judge-Executive. Doolittle has previously worked with the city of Paducah in a couple of positions, and was also an administrator for the county at one time. He has also served as Executive Director of the Paducah Riverfront Development Authority. 

Clymer said he believes everything has been set up, and all that's needed is for the Fiscal Court to approve the hire at its Monday meeting. 

Current Deputy Judge-Executive Doug Moore, who worked during Bob Leeper's term in office, will continue in the position for the next month or two, and then will retire.

Clymer said, "Doug Moore told me weeks ago he wanted to be gone by the end of March, so we'll bring Doolittle in either the first of March or maybe even the first of February, mid-February, somewhere in there. We'll talk that over a little bit."

The first Fiscal Court meeting with Clymer and new Commissioners Eddie Jones and Jeff Parker is Monday at 5 pm. Bill Bartleman is the only county commissioner who retained his seat in the 2018 election.
