Cherry Wants To Finish Projects



The soon-to-be former Hopkinsville City Council woman who has filed to run for a seat on Christian Fiscal Court says there are some projects she would like to continue working on. Councilwoman Ann Cherry says she decided to run for the District 4 magisterial seat to keep some important projects from falling to the wayside.


   
Cherry says running for Magistrate does not conflict with her settlement from the criminal case against her earlier this year.



She says she'd like to focus on bike and pedestrian safety on state roads in and out of town.



Tom Jones had previously announced that he would not be running for another term in office. Cherry has filed as a Democrat. Darrell Gustafson has filed as a Republican for the District 4 seat.

A news release from Cherry says "I may have needed some time off to heal from the malicious wounds perpetrated against my family, and me, but I'm back now, better, stronger, and wiser than before.   Rather than dwelling on the past injustices, I choose to learn from them, and to move forward to make Christian County a better, gentler, kinder place to live with justice, equality, and prosperity for all."

Cherry was indicted in August of 2012 on charges of tampering with evidence, tampering with a witness, and official misconduct in connection with alleged involvement into the Southside Prowler investigation. In November 2013, Cherry avoided a trial and possible jail time by agreeing to step down from the Council and not run for Mayor or City Council again.
