While most people will not interact with the clerk’s office on a regular basis, it is important that when they do their interaction is as stress-free and easy as possible. My experience working within the legal system and knowledge of Kentucky law will be invaluable in the operation of this office.

David Fernandez, closing attorney and co-owner of Central Kentucky Title, LLC, is running for the office of Madison County Circuit Court Clerk (CCC). “As an attorney and resident of Madison County for more than 30 years, I have helped thousands of Madison County residents with their real estate transactions,” said Fernandez. “I have also practiced before the Madison County District (including small claims, probate, and landlord-tenant issues), Circuit and Family Courts. I am very detailed-oriented and understand the importance and integrity of this office.”

The position of CCC is responsible for processing, providing and maintaining judicial records in the district, circuit and family court systems. Some of the duties of the clerk include collecting court fees, issuing driver’s licenses, subpoenas, coordinating jury selection and appeals from lower courts. The CCC is also the liaison between the court system and the public, answering questions about fines, payments, court appearances and warrants.

“The position of Circuit Court Clerk is not based on ideology or politics; it is about being an effective administrator and serving the citizens of Madison County,” noted Fernandez. “While most people will not interact with the clerk’s office on a regular basis, it is important that when they do their interaction is as stress-free and easy as possible. My experience working within the legal system and knowledge of Kentucky law will be invaluable in the operation of this office.”

Circuit Court Clerks are not required to be attorneys, but that is the trend in Kentucky. The Circuit Court Clerks of Jefferson, Fayette and Kenton County all went to law school.

Fernandez has served as President of the Madison County Bar Association and the Richmond Exchange Club. Additionally, he has taught Banking Law for the American Institute of Banking, Real Estate and General Law at Eastern Kentucky University and Contract Law for the Kentucky Real Estate Commission and the Madison County Board of Realtors.

Born in Lexington, Kentucky, Fernandez has lived in Madison County for over 30 years. “Although I have a Latin-sounding last name, I am a Cuban hillbilly. My grandfather sent my dad from Cuba to Kentucky in 1946 to attend military school at Millersburg Military Institution in Bourbon County,” concluded Fernandez. “My mother is from Pikeville and is related to both the Hatfields and McCoys. My great-grandmother was a McCoy. My parents met while my mother was attending Pikeville College (now University of Pikeville) and my father was attending the University of Kentucky.”
