Joseph Smith Named To Vacant Council Seat

Posted: Updated:
Council Nominee, Joseph Smith Council Nominee, Joseph Smith

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)-- Mayor Jim Gray held a news conference Friday morning to announce his nominee for the vacant second district council seat.

Joseph Smith is Gray's nominee, but he must get approval from two-thirds of the council. He will replace Sasha Love Higgins, who resigned last month after being indicted for identity theft and forgery.

Love Higgins is accused of stealing money from the Beaumont Hampton Inn, where she used to be the general manager. 

Investigators say Love Higgins set up a bank account in a former employee's name, and took about $5,700.

Love Higgins was elected in November to represent the second district.
