Rik Hawkins is the new president of the Elizabethtown-Hardin County Chamber of Commerce. The announcement came this morning at a press conference at the Chamber.
Hawkins, who filed last month to run for Hardin County Judge-Executive, will drop out of that race this week. He also ran for Judge-Executive in 2007 and lost to Harry Berry.
Hawkins will begin his duties in early January and replaces Tim Asher, who resigned from the post last month.
