FRANKFORT — In addition to their state salaries, Gov. Steve Beshear and the six other Kentucky constitutional officers have additional sources of income.
Such information — including their debts and the property they own — is found in annual financial disclosure forms they file with the Executive Branch Ethics Commission.
State law requires executive branch officials to submit the filing each year by April 15, detailing their families' financial information.
They also must disclose nonfamily gifts worth more than $200.
Never miss a local story.
The disclosure forms do not require a list of exactly how much each source of income generated, but they indicate that each of the state's six constitutional officers do not depend solely on their state salaries.
For example, Beshear, whose base salary is $138,012, and first lady Jane Beshear listed six sources of gross income of more than $1,000 on their 2014 form.
The Beshears reported retirement income from the Social Security Administration, a Schwab One investment account in Lexington, two Hilliard Lyons investment accounts in Hopkinsville, from Hourglass Farm in Lexington, and interest and dividend income from the Fred M. Klingner Trust under a 2006 will in Greer, S.C.
Beshear spokesman Terry Sebastian said money from the Klingner Trust is an inheritance from the estate and trust of Jane Beshear's father. He said the full amount would be disclosed on the Beshears' tax returns, which are made public each year.
The Beshears reported owning business interests with a fair market value of at least $10,000 or 5 percent in Hourglass Farm and Deep Purple Eventing syndication agreement in Somerset, Va.
They identified three creditors to whom they owe more than $10,000: Farm Credit Services of Mid America in Louisville, Schwab One Account in Lexington, and Hilliard Lyons Account in Hopkinsville. That was unchanged from last year.
Steve Beshear listed two gifts worth more than $200: University of Kentucky men's football and basketball season tickets and NCAA tournament tickets, and an honorary membership in Frankfort Country Club.
Here are highlights from the 2014 financial disclosure forms of other state constitutional officers, each of whom makes $117,329 a year:
■ Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson, who resigned in November to take a White House job: and his wife, Madeline, reported gross income exceeding $1,000 from Morgan Stanley Investment Accounts in Louisville.
The Abramsons owe more than $10,000 to Republic Bank in Louisville for a mortgage.
■ Lt. Gov. Crit Luallen, who replaced Abramson, and her husband, Lynn, reported gross income exceeding $1,000 from their family farm near Frankfort.
They owe more than $10,000 to Community Trust Bank in Pikeville for a mortgage.
Luallen also noted on her form that as lieutenant governor, she assumed a position on the Kentucky Housing Corp. board. In turn, she said, her husband resigned from that board to avoid any appearance of conflict.
She also said she resigned from the Community Trust Bank board and Kentucky Historical Society.
