David Duff announces candidacy for Leitchfield City Council seat

Another candidate has emerged in next year’s Leitchfield City Council race.

David Duff has announced his candidacy for the non-partisan position.

Duff said he has been a resident of Grayson County for over 20 years, and graduated from Grayson County High School in 2002. After graduating from GCHS, Duff continued his education, receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and Business Administration.

Since 2006, he said he’s worked as a public servant at the county, state, and currently the federal level.

“My service has been in the correctional and social service capacities,” he stated. “Prior to 2006, I worked in the private sector with at-risk juveniles. Service to others is my calling, and that calling is one that I can bring to the city council.”

Duff said his goal is to be a fresh voice for Leitchfield.

“It would be my duty to listen to the needs and concerns of the city and take a fiscally responsible, common sense approach to all matters presented,” Duff said. “I believe all residents of the city deserve the best from its leadership, regardless if they are a lifelong resident or only recently call Leitchfield home. I am excited to campaign this year and meet as many people as possible. It is sure to be a rewarding experience.”

It would be an honor to serve at the local level, he said, adding that his “experience in government and his education will help demonstrate his capabilities as a leader, and ability to serve the small town so many of us call home.”

He and his wife of 12 years have been blessed with five wonderful children, Duff said, and he remains committed and determined to raise them to be responsible, contributing members of society.

Duff stated that he “humbly asks for your vote, and for the opportunity to serve on the Leitchfield City Council in 2020.”
