Retired Christian County Attorney Mike foster has written a book that documents what he learned during over four decades of public service in hopes of assisting current and future local elected officials in Kentucky.
Foster retired from elected office at the end of August after serving as county attorney since 1982 and having served additional years before that as assistant county attorney. He says he was contacted this summer by the executive director of the Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners Association, who wanted him to put what he learned during that time to paper.
Foster has often spoke to judges-executive and magistrates in Kentucky and says he was able to use outlines from those conferences to construct his book.
He says the book, Best Practices in County Government, will be published soon and then distributed by the Kentucky Association of Counties and other agencies to elected officials.
