November 14, 2018

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — President Donald Trump has nominated a Louisville police lieutenant to serve as U.S. marshal for the Western District of Kentucky.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the president has sent the nomination of Gary Burman to the Senate. McConnell, who sets the Senate’s agenda, says he looks forward to the Senate confirming Burman.

The Kentucky Republican lawmaker says Burman has the “qualifications and preparation needed to excel” in the job, noting that Burman would bring with him nearly four decades of law enforcement experience.

Burman’s career with Louisville police began as a patrol officer in 1980. He spent one year as a special agent with the FBI and returned to the police department in 1990.
