Steve Tribble  was elected to the position of County Judge/Executive and took office in January of 1994.  He is currently in his fifth term in office.  Prior to running in his first political campaign, he retired from the state as a parole officer.  Judge Tribble was born in 1947, in Hopkinsville, Kentucky.  He graduated from Hopkinsville High School in 1965; attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, and graduated from Murray State University in 1970, with a BS in Business Administration.

He began his career as a social worker for the Kentucky Cabinet for Human Resources, and then went to work for the state as a parole officer in 1974.  He worked for the Kentucky Corrections Cabinet for 19 years before retiring as District Supervisor of the Christian County Probation & Parole office, and accumulating 22 years of service in state government.

Judge Tribble and his wife, Shelley, have two daughters, Leigh and Allison, and reside in Hopkinsville.

The duties of  County Judge/Executive are wide and varied, but his primary responsibility is the administration of county government.  The judge/executive’s responsibilities for the financial administration of county government have expanded substantially in recent years, to include preparation of the county budget, oversight of county funds, financial reports to the fiscal court and fiscal record keeping.

The Judge/Executive is required to assure the representation of the county on all board, commissions, special districts, and multi-county programs in which county participation is called for.

County judges/executive have the power to perform marriage ceremonies.  They may also authorize fiscal court magistrates to perform marriages.  In Christian County, any of the eight magistrates are authorized to marry couples, although some of them prefer not to.  Judge Tribble performs over 300 marriages a year, and because his duties require that he attend many meetings, weddings are only performed on certain days of the week. Couples are required to schedule an appointment in advance for a marriage ceremony.
