You can add veteran Christian County Coroner Dorris Lamb to the list of local elected officials who will be retiring early to avoid changes that take effect in January to the Kentucky retirement system.
Lamb issued a news release Saturday saying he is, “truly humbled” that God has allowed him to serve as coroner for 32 years.
He continues, “I would like to thank all that I have served or been in contact with during the times of life and death. I have made it a point to serve each of these families with honesty and integrity. For those who have lost loved ones, my heart goes out to you and they will not be forgotten.”
Lamb ends by saying, “Thank you so much for the opportunity to have shared my life with you during your greatest time of need.”
An interim coroner will be appointed to serve out Lamb’s term until coroner-elect Scott Daniel takes over in January.
Christian County Attorney Mike Foster retired early and Circuit Court Clerk Gary Haddock will retire November 30th, with both saying they’d stand to take a substantial loss in retirement benefits if they completed their final term.
