Campbell County is celebrating National County Government Month

April is National County Government Month, and Campbell County wants to offer you a chance to learn more about your hometown county.

The National Association of Counties has designated April as National County Government Month, offering those interested a chance to learn more about your local county government (the Campbell County Fiscal Court) and the services we provide to the community. Here are some facts about the county, our leadership, and our organization.

Campbell County

  • Founded in 1794, Campbell County originally included what is now Boone, Grant, Kenton, and Pendleton Counties.
  • Campbell County is one of only two of Kentucky's 120 counties that has (and is authorized to have) two county seats: Newport and Alexandria.
  • Our county is proud to be the home of Northern Kentucky University, as well as a thriving urban core and vast, productive farmland and hillsides created by the rivers that surround us on three sides.

County Government

  • The Campbell County Fiscal Court consists of the county judge/executive and three county commissioners, who are elected at-large but must reside in their respective commission district. These officials provide the elected leadership and oversight of the county's budget, as well as its 200+ employees.
  • The county provides a broad range of services to residents and businesses both in unincorporated county and our 15 municipalities, including planning and zoning services, public safety functions, operation of the county animal shelter, management of the county parks and golf course, county roads maintenance and construction, economic development, and more.

Judge Steve Pendery

  • Steve Pendery is in his fifth term (18th year) as county judge/executive, first elected to the post in November 1998. He previously served as the mayor of Fort Thomas.
  • Judge Pendery is active with Northern Kentucky Tri-ED, the OKI Regional Council of Governments, the Campbell County Conservation District, and the Dan Beard Council of Boy Scouts, among many others.
