Morgan will represent District 6, which covers southwestern portions of Nicholasville. He ran for the office in the 2002 Democratic primary.
McCuddy resigned Sept. 2 as magistrate to become the new director for Nicholasville-Jessamine County Parks and Recreation. He had to resign as magistrate because the fiscal court contributes to Parks and Rec's $600,000 annual budget.
The four-year term expires at the end of 2010.
