His face said it all, as family and friends started filling the Bledsoe County Courthouse downstairs courtroom Friday afternoon, July 15. Pikeville Mayor Philip “Winky” Cagle was totally surprised by Bledsoe County Mayor Gregg Ridley with a framed resolution honoring his 31 of service as Bledsoe County Assessor of Property and his ten years of service in the office he currently holds as mayor of Pikeville.
Mayor Ridley explained, when Cagle retired from the Assessor’s office in 2011, he was not in office at the time. He realized Cagle had never been honored for his 31 years of service to the county. So, he decided to do something about that.
