Candidates for Upcoming Election
At the September 14, 2022 Kentucky Retirement Systems (KRS) Board of Trustees meeting, the Board nominated Mr. Keith Peercy to be on the State Police Retirement System (SPRS) election ballot. The ballot could contain up to three candidates; however, Mr. Peercy was the only individual who applied for the position.
SPRS members not nominated by the Board may be placed on the ballot by submitting a petition from the SPRS membership. Per Kentucky Revised Statute 61.645, the petition must contain the name, last four digits of Social Security number, and signature of no less than 50 members (1/10 of the number of members voting in the last SPRS election). Individuals seeking nomination by petition must also submit a completed application, cover letter, detailed résumé, picture, and signed release for a criminal background check to be performed by the Kentucky State Police. These documents do not need to be submitted if they were provided earlier during the current election process. Petition and all other documents must be submitted to the KPPA Division of Internal Audit no later than November 30, 2022.
