The 2014 Election season officially kicked off Wednesday with candidates for local offices flocking to their county clerks and a batch of early bird judicial and state legislative candidates turning in their paperwork at the state Capitol.
The day started in Lexington at 8 a.m. with Fayette County PVA David O’Neill filing to run for his second full term at the Fayette County clerk’s office.
And the first day of filing drew out entrenched incumbents, such as one Louisville Democrat who could tie the record for longest-serving state representative, and newbies, including one first time candidate seeking an open House seat in Louisville.
Here’s a snapshot of Day 1 of the candidate filing period, which ends at 4 p.m. Jan. 28:
