Booneville mayor of 55 years said to be Kentucky's longest-serving

When Charles Long became mayor of the Owsley County seat in 1959, Dwight D. Eisenhower was president and Fidel Castro had just taken over Cuba. Fifty-five years later, Long, 94, remains mayor of Booneville, where the 2010 census counted only 81 residents. The Kentucky League of Cities says he is the longest-serving mayor in the state.
