Meet Luther Tackett

I’m a Democratic candidate for Letcher County Jailer, #4 on the ballot.  I lived in Letcher County my whole life.  I’ve worked at the Letcher County jail for about 11 years.  I’ve been a work release supervisor for about 10 years.  I’ve tried my best to get out and cut cemeteries for everyone in Letcher County.  I treat everyone the same & with respect.  I will work hard as the next jailer of Letcher County.  These are some of the things I want to do as your next county jailer.


One thing is I want to keep the inmates safe, and I wanna keep the inmates that’s in the Letcher County Jail locked up as their time requires.  Two, I want to build the work release into the best work release program in Kentucky & add more work release inmates to the program.  I want to have two crews cutting cemeteries and one primary crew picking up trash in Letcher County off the highways and hollers.  I want to clean up Letcher County for everyone to be proud of.


I would love for you to elect me as your Letcher County Jailer.  I work hard for the citizens of Letcher County, and if elected, my door will be open to everyone.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
