There is now a new Whitley County Surveyor.
Long time incumbent Whitley County Surveyor Bob Moses didn’t file seeking to run for re-election to another four-year term earlier this year.
He resigned as county surveyor on July 19.
Whitley County Judge-Executive Pat White Jr. appointed Jesse Partin on Aug. 1 to replace Moses and fill out the remainder of his current term in office.
Partin filed as a write-in candidate on Tuesday seeking to be elected to the county surveyor’s position for a four-year term during this November’s General Election.
The county surveyor position doesn’t pay, but the office holder does get an office in the courthouse.
