Frankfort native William I. May, Jr. took office as Mayor on January 1, 2013 for his fourth term. He served as Mayor of Kentucky’s capital city from 1996 to 2009, but due to a Constitutional three term limit was unable to run for a fourth consecutive term. He was the first Mayor to succeed himself since the 1800’s.
Between his third and fourth mayoral terms, he continued to serve on the Board of Commissioners as City Commissioner.
