Justin Hanson announces he will not seek re-election as Covington’s mayor

Tuesday Covington Mayor Justin Hanson announced he will not be seeking re-election. “Serving as mayor of this wonderful city has been one of the greatest joys of my life,” he said in a letter addressed to colleagues and friends. “It has also been a great privilege to serve with such wonderful and dedicated employees. It’s always been my goal to leave our wonderful city better than I found it. I certainly feel that’s the case. Our streets are safer, our debt is lower, our economy is strong, our pension is fully funded, and our fund balance is higher than it has ever been! During these past eight years, we have successfully prepared Covington for the growth and development we are about to experience with this generational transformation called Blue Oval City.”
