Ben Hale is returning to the office of county judge-executive.


Floyd County voters overwhelmingly gave their approval to Hale, who easily defeated Drains Unlimited owner Mike Pennington, 7,858 to 4,709. Bennie Lafferty placed a distant third, with an even 1,000 votes.


Hale, who ran campaign ads claiming that Floyd County is in a state of crisis, was given a mandate by Floyd County voters, who gave him nearly 58 percent of the vote in the three-way race.
