Long-time Bell County judge announces his retirement
From WRIL -
Announced today is the retirement of long-time Bell County Judge Robert V. Costanzo. The judge tells WRIL that "Since 2000, it has been my distinct privilege to serve in both District and Circuit Courts. The hands of time have moved much more swiftly than I could have ever anticipated. I suddenly realized that I have more years behind me than I do in front of me.
After several months of tough consideration, sleepless nights, and many conversations with my family, I’ve made the decision to retire. It’s been a great honor to serve the people of Bell County for more than two decades. Thank you to each of you for making it so special."
Mr. Costanzo also stated that he plans for his last day to be August 3rd of this year.
As we understand protocol those Bell County attorneys who are interested in running for the soon-to-be-vacated position will have to file their intentions to do so. The final decision will be made by Governor Andy Beshear.
