A Message from Jefferson County Clerk Bobbie Holsclaw

I was truly saddened to learn former State Representative Darryl T. Owens passed away Tuesday night, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family members during this time. There has been a well-deserved outpouring of messages from leaders across the area reflecting on his community leadership, and I am proud to remember Darryl as a nice and genuine person, who I am glad to have called a friend.

Darryl worked tirelessly to improve and lift Jefferson County and break barriers. An army veteran, he was the first African American elected to the Jefferson County Fiscal Court, where he served for over 20 years, following his time as a district judge and assistant attorney general. He was also the first African American person to run for the Mayor's office. As a Representative of District 43 in the Kentucky house, he worked until his retirement just a few short years ago to move civil rights, criminal justice, and public education measures forward, eventually becoming Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. The work he pioneered at the county and state level sets a powerful example for us all; we have lost a true public servant. I'm grateful for all he has done, and grateful for the chance to have known him.
