Vote will be sought to fill county prosecutor position
By DEBBIE HALL - Bulletin Staff Writer
The Henry County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday will receive Commonwealth’s Attorney Bob Bushnell’s resignation and ask the circuit court to set a special election to fill the prosecutor’s post.
Bushnell’s resignation will become effective on July 1, the same day he will become a judge in the 21st District Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court. He was appointed to the judgeship in April.
Also on July 1, Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Andrew Nester, now the chief deputy in Bushnell’s office, will become acting commonwealth’s attorney. He will serve in that post until the results of a special election are known, according to Bushnell’s letter.
