W. Brown Buford,
New Jessamine County Judge

W. Brown Buford, the new Judge of Jessamine county, will take oath of office Monday, displacing Judge W. H. Phillips, who has held the office of County Judge continuously for 13 years.

Judge Buford is 45 years old and was born, reared and educated in Jessamine county.  He has always been a staunch Republican and for many years was the leader of his party in this county.  He is a son of the W. L. Buford, who served in the Seventh Kentucky Regiment on the Union side during the Civil War.

Judge Buford served the people of Jessamine county as postmaster of Nicholasville for four years before his election to the judgeship.

He was the only Republican who ran for a county office at the November election and defeated the Democratic nominee, Judge Phillips, by only 50 votes.  His election is made more remarkable by the fact that Jessamine county is normally Democratic by about 250 votes.
