Reece Smoot, a Bourbon County native and longtime Nicholas county resident, discusses his family history, military service record, education, and the public offices he has held in Nicholas County, which include Deputy Sheriff, Sheriff, and County Judge Executive. He concludes the county has good roads and schools, but it needs more industry and housing, two factors he sought to address while in office.

He also discusses Blue Grass Industry, which employs 300-400 people, his possible plans for reelection and a need for new water and sewage lines.
